Birchbox | Pooja Agarwal
In our latest episode, we bring you a special interview with Pooja Agarwal, Chief Operating Officer of beauty subscription brand Birchbox. She explains how this pioneer of the subscription model has evolved and continues to remain on the cutting edge of the customer experience, and look ahead to what lies in store as it embarks on its next exciting chapter.
To many, buying makeup can be confusing, expensive, and inconvenient. Birchbox founders Hayley Barna and Katia Beauchamp thought so too. A decade ago, they envisioned a way for customers — just like themselves — to easily and efficiently try, learn about, and purchase beauty products online. And so beauty subscription service Birchbox was born.
Today it has more than 4 million subscribers and customers around the world. It has also expanded its offer into male grooming — allowing it to tap into an enormous group of underserved consumers.
In this special episode of The Interview Series, recorded in New York earlier this year, Birchbox COO, Pooja Agarwal sits down with US host Dave Evans. She explains how this pioneer of the subscription model has evolved and continues to remain on the cutting edge of the customer experience. Looks ahead to what lies in store as it embarks on its next exciting chapter. And shares the story of her own remarkable journey in retail.
