The VentureFizz Podcast: Danielle Cohen-Shohet - Co-Founder and CEO of GlossGenius

For the 117th episode of our podcast, I interviewed Danielle Cohen-Shohet, Co-Founder and CEO of GlossGenius.

While some children may aspire to become a doctor, astronaut, or firefighter, Danielle’s plan, even from an early age, was very different. Her plan was to start and build a company.

Danielle’s aspirations became a reality with GlossGenius, the all-in-one solution for top beauty professionals. Their platform is helping very small business owners with the complexities of running a business. It simplifies and automates things like scheduling, client management, and payment, so the business owner can focus on servicing their customers.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover lots of topics:

  • Danielle’s background story, including some of her entrepreneurial endeavors as a child.
  • All about GlossGenius and how they are helping very small business owners operate and run their business.
  • How narrowing the potential customer lens to a specific segment helped propel their business forward.
  • The Techstars experience and how they benefited from going through this accelerator.
  • Danielle's thoughts on why all founders should learn how to code.
  • Lessons learned around hiring and onboarding.
  • And so much more.
