Fireside Chat Series: New Retail Business Models

Philip Krim
Co-Founder & CEO, Casper
As CEO, Philip leads Casper's comprehensive business strategy, expansion, and vision for the future. Working with the company's four other cofounders, Philip drives Casper's goal of becoming the first end-to-end sleep brand. Philip and Casper's cofounder recognized a paradox in 2014 — a generation of entrepreneurs and working professionals who were placing increasing value on their health and fitness were neglecting sleep.

Casper is now reimagining the sleep industry from the ground up. A serial entrepreneur, Philip has founded and served as CEO at two previous startups, where he focused on new and evolving consumer and ecommerce trends. He launched his very first business out of his dorm room at the University of Texas, Austin. He was named one of Business Insider's Silicon Alley 100 and received a TechCrunch Crunchie award for Best in E-Commerce.
