Jane Lu founded Showpo back in 2010 from her parents’ garage. Jane previously worked in accounting and corporate finance, but after returning from a year abroad, was inspired to ditch the “cubicle life”, so she quit her job to start her own business.

With so much enthusiasm for entrepreneurship, she set off to start her first business, which failed spectacularly. However, Jane was undeterred and got right back on the horse, starting the online fashion brand, Showpo the following month.

What started off with a laptop and two shelves of clothing is now an online global fashion empire, shipping to 80 countries. Through being disruptive in the retail space and capitalising on the use of social media, Showpo now boasts a cult social following of over 3.5 million.

Jane is a keynote speaker, is heavily involved in Australia’s startup scene and has been nominated for numerous awards, taking the title of Cosmopolitan’s Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015 and Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia in 2016.

Jane is extremely passionate about promoting entrepreneurship and women in business. She co-founded the group "Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine", a business group that promotes and encourages girl bosses around the world. Since its inception in August 2015, the group has experienced enormous traction with 80,000+ members and meet up events in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, LA and San Francisco.

Jane’s Lazy CEO social handle is not a true reflection of her work ethic, but conversely comes from her unshakable belief that once you have found a job you love, you’ll never have to work another day in your life. She feels her success with Showpo results from building a passionate, highly skilled and dedicated team who share this belief.
