About the event

Welcome to TSL's Global Startup Series.

In this series, we explore the global startup arena and delve into what startups around the world are doing. Each session, we chat with a startup from different parts of the world to discuss:

  • How this "global pandemic" is affecting them in their country base
  • How this has impacted working across international borders
  • The future of global businesses
  • The reality of pivoting and adapting

If you are looking at doing business across borders or want to know how startups across the world are faring, then this series is for you. Join us every Wednesday for TSL's Global Startup Series.

Renato Anselmi Ricci, Founder & COO, nok As a founding COO and former strategy consultant, Renato loves getting shit done. As a passionate Italian, his uncomfortable honesty is only second to his sarcasm. Having more energy than a battery, Renato considers himself  to be abnormally driven & curious. As a founder, polyglot, and seasoned traveler, he makes many mistakes but few are the same. Nothing makes him prouder than disrupting the retail industry with the great team at nok.

A bit about Nok Through nok you can generate product experiences at scale. Try products from the comfort of your home for 7 days with $0 down and buying is entirely optional - pretty convenient especially during covid! The only circular retail supply chain - every package comes with a pre-paid return label, we sanitize and rebox returns within 48 hours of receipt and send them out to the next home. This not only stops their inappropriate disposal which causes unquantifiable harm to the environment and >$400 billion in yearly losses for brands, but also transforms returns into our partner brands' greatest marketing assets, courtesy of the awesome free tryout experience. We're hiring across the board and are always on the lookout for exciting products for our growing nokster community to try before they buy.
