    How I Built Modern Picnic with Founder Ali Kaminetsky

    How I Built Modern Picnic with Founder Ali Kaminetsky

    Ali shares her founder's story of how she went from an idea, to a stapled together  template for the first Modern Picnic lunch bag, to a fast growing brand that is sold in luxury stores like Saks Fifth Avenue.

    This episode educates, inspires and gives you an edge to win in your business and in your life.

    About Ali Kaminetsky
    Forbes Next 1000 List-Maker, Ali Kaminetsky of Modern Picnic, disrupted the cooler industry in 2018 when she created a lunch box created for the cosmopolitan working woman. The chic, functional, sustainable, vegan leather lunch box has been celebrated by over 200 media outlets, including Forbes, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Oprah, The Today Show and more. 

    Since its launch, Modern Picnic has grown into a multi-million dollar business with roots in charity, women’s empowerment, and their commitment to creating innovative, multifunctional products.

    Ali began the entrepreneurship journey right after graduating from college, working in the retail industry. She would bring her lunch to work everyday because of how much faster, cheaper and healthier it was. However, she quickly realized she did not have a chic or functional way to do so. When she googled “lunchbox” she saw options for little kids and men, but nothing for women who wanted to look good or do good. It was clear the outdated lunchbox needed a makeover, and from there, Modern Picnic was born.

    Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital in America: The Rise of the Rest with Steve Case

    Steve and Brandon talk about venture capital, the early days at AOL, entrepreneurship, and the exciting entrepreneurs he met in his Rise of the Rest tour across the United States.

    About Steve Case
    Steve Case is one of America’s best-known and most accomplished entrepreneurs and philanthropists, and a pioneer in making the Internet part of everyday life. 

    Case co-founded AOL in 1985 and under his leadership and vision, AOL became the largest and most valuable Internet company, driving the worldwide adoption of a medium that has transformed business and society.

    Case is Chairman and CEO of Revolution LLC, a Washington, D.C.- based investment firm that backs entrepreneurs at every stage of their development. Revolution Growth has invested nearly $1 billion in growth-stage companies including Sweetgreen, Tempus, DraftKings, and Clear. Revolution Ventures has backed more than two dozen venture-stage companies, including Framebridge and PolicyGenius. The Rise of the Rest Seed Fund has invested in more than 200 startups in over 100 U.S. cities, in partnership with many of America’s most successful entrepreneurs and investors. 

    Steve’s passion for helping entrepreneurs remains his driving force. Recently named co-chair of the National Advisory Council for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Council will advise on the development of a National Entrepreneurship Strategy and continue to support policies that will ensure America’s competitiveness globally.

    In 2011, he was the founding chair of the Startup America Partnership—an effort launched at the White House to accelerate high-growth entrepreneurship throughout the nation—and member of President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness where he chaired the subcommittee on entrepreneurship.

    He is also the author of the forthcoming book Rise of the Rest: How Entrepreneurs in Surprising Places are Building the New American Dream, and the New York Times bestselling book The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur’s Vision of the Future.
