Q&A with Lisa Gautier
CEO @ The Pasta Haters
What are your plans for the future?
Our plans for the future is to make vintage shops and local retailers the number one destination for consumers. We believe that with our retail software, we can bring innovation to retailers with little resources and give them an edge against chains and bigger players.
Why did you become an entrepreneur?
I spent 10 years building my career after a while it felt like the right time. I always wanted to have my own venture and now I can also give back and follow a mission with a positive impact on society.
Aside from achieving commercial success, what do you see as your startup’s mission?
We want to change consumer behaviours in the fashion industry. Teaching them to choose vintage against high-street retailers. We're here to unlock vintage online.
Describe your perfect day at work.
A perfect day at work is when customers send us thank you email, showing their love for the new products they bought. But also when vintage sellers leave their current solution to sell, to ours.
What is your best advice for entrepreneurs who are just starting out?
Well... it is not easy and it takes time so keep that in mind so you won't give up too early.
