Recorded at Next Generation Customer Delivery, Deepa Gandhi joins us and shares that the 13 year old version of her wanted to be an engineer but later realized an interest in international studies which turned into a job in finance which has turned into a career in fashion. Deepa eventually came together with her partners Melissa and Jesse who were looking to create a more functional, less expensive bag. At Wharton, Deepa took advantage of being a student by traveling to Spain and China to identify best practices for supply chain management operations under the guise of studying.

With a primarily millennial work force, Dagne Dover has discovered a flat organization and Deepa takes us through how they make it work. One key is having the entire organization manage towards one metric.
