#BeautyBioBoss Series: Amber Venz Box
Not many people can say they monetized a social media platform, giving shape to an entirely new virtual shopping experience enjoyed by millions of people across the globe every day.
Enter, Amber Venz Box, the co-creator and President of RewardStyle,
aka the minds behind our favorite app that emails us insider shopping deets seconds after we heart an influencer's Instagram post with the footnote, “liketk.it.”
Creating RewardStyle with her S.O. and now husband, Baxter Box, Amber’s own journey with fashion blogging helped steer this duo toward solving the blogger’s “middleman” income debacle. Influencers who were creating premium content and driving up retailer sales were routinely cut out of the profits until RewardStyle launched in 2010 and delivered that missing piece of technology enabling bloggers to start reaping financial benefits.
Helping us find our favorite designers dresses is only one of the many reasons we love this native Texan, mother of two and tech entrepreneur who navigates her busy days with the help of Nerd Ropes and Air Head Extremes.
