Canada's Yona Shtern failed at four startups before succeeding on his fifth with Beyond the Rack. A private shopping club for women and men offering authentic designer brand apparel and accessories at up to 80% off retail prices, Beyond the Rack's sales hit $6 million in its first year, $50 million in its second and $100 million in its third. By 2012 sales had reached a staggering $200 million. Shtern credits big bucks (including $53 million from angel and venture-capital investors) and the brainpower behind it—so-called “smart money”—as essential to creating one of North America's fastest-growing on-line enterprises. Yona will share the story of Beyond the Rack, its meteoric rise as an online retail powerhouse and the factors and strategies that continue to feed its success. His discussion will cover:

· Raising capital

· Recognizing gaps in expertise and investing in top senior talent

· Turning your employees into stakeholders

· Keeping focus and working toward your objectives
