The Texas Business Hall of Fame Alumni Association invites you to join us for an exclusive virtual conversation
with Philip Krim, the Co-Founder and CEO of Casper, on Wednesday, September 22nd from 12:00 to 1:00pm
Co-Founder & CEO, Casper
Casper’s mission is based on a simple but powerful belief: If we all got great sleep, the world would be brighter. Casper, which launched in 2014, disrupted the mattress market with an innovative idea – compressed mattresses shipped directly to buyers’ homes.
Today, Casper is a more than just a mattress brand, they are an end-to-end sleep company. From mattresses to bed frames, bedding to pet accessories, Casper is bringing innovation to a market that had long been stagnant. And it’s a valuable market to tap into; 20 million mattresses are purchased in the US each year, representing $18 billion in sales.
Philip will discuss his origins as a founder and entrepreneur, how he built the Casper brand, and identifying opportunities for expansion.
This is a unique opportunity to learn from a Texas founder who has disrupted the e-commerce space and is constantly innovating in a competitive market. This event is offered exclusively to TBHF Alumni. Space is limited so please reserve your spot today. We look forward to seeing you there!
About Philip Krim
As Chief Executive Officer, Philip leads Casper’s comprehensive business strategy, expansion, and vision for the future. He drives Casper’s goal of becoming the first end-to-end sleep brand. Philip and his co-founders recognized a paradox in 2014 — a generation of entrepreneurs and working professionals who were placing increasing value on their health and fitness were neglecting sleep. Casper is now reimagining the sleep industry from the ground up. A serial entrepreneur, Philip has founded two previous startups, where he focused on evolving consumer and e-commerce trends. He received a B.B.A. in Marketing from Red McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin.
