Alexandra Wilkis Wilson

Co-Founder + Managing Partner


Alexandra is best known professionally as the Co-Founder of e-commerce sensation, Gilt, which grew to $650M+ in revenue within 5 years of its launch and sold to Hudson’s Bay Corporation. She was also Co-Founder of beauty services leader GLAMSQUAD, as well as a closet-organizing and styling company Fitz, which sold to Tradesy, the peer-to-peer luxury e-commerce company. Today, Alexandra is the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of a growth equity fund called Clerisy, investing in consumer and techsumer companies. Alexandra has been an avid angel investor and/or advisor to 80+ consumer tech companies, including Rent the Runway, The Mirror, Carbon38, Tula and Bubble, to name a few. Alexandra is an active champion of female founders and the co-author of New York Times bestseller, “By Invitation Only: How We Built Gilt and Changed the Way Millions Shop”. Don’t hold it against Alexandra that she is a double H – Harvard B.A. and MBA. Alexandra’s humility is disarming, especially when she speaks to you in your native language (of which she speaks five). Alexandra is a relentless consumer, forever testing new platforms and products. When she is not analyzing a new consumer concept, Alexandra can be found on the tennis court and not missing her New York roots as she soaks up sunshine with her husband and two kids in their new Miami digs.
