Co-founder and CEO Katherine Hague aims to change the way consumers buy and sell products online. She said “e-commerce will not longer be reserved for marketplaces and storefronts. Instead, products will find us – on blogs, websites and in our newsfeeds, just as naturally as the videos and photos we share today.”
