About Liz and ZipFit:

Liz began her professional career in consulting at Mercer and later worked for multiple startups. She studied Mathematics, Italian, and Economics at Emory University and earned her MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Liz has blogged for Forbes Entrepreneurial Channel, guest blogged on Fortune, and spoken at several events including Women 2.0 and the Chicago Innovation Exchange.

With consulting and retail experience under her belt, Liz planted her roots in Chicago and participated in the Booth School of Business New Venture Competition, thus sparking momentum for the establishment of ZipFit Denim. Recognizing that jeans are a major problem area for many when it comes to shopping, Liz combined her passion for business and fashion through ZipFit, eliminating the struggle of poorly fitted jeans.

ZipFit is designed to pair customers with designer denim brands that help customers achieve the perfect fit for their bodies, while also boosting their overall self confidence in the process. ZipFit has received funding from multiple investors including Math Venture Partners, Irish Angels, Great Oaks Venture Capital, 606 Capital Partners and many individual angel investors. As ZipFit has rapidly grown over the years, so has its client base including athletes such as Deion Sanders and Troy Aikman. When not dreaming up math equations to improve your denim experience, Liz enjoys indulging in chocolate and building household furniture.
