On this week’s show, we spoke with Gabrielle La Rue, Gabrielle La Rue, Founder & CEO @ Locketgo. Gabrielle started her career at Evenko where she learned about events and the music space. She decided to quit a good job and launch Locketgo.
Locketgo offers a "turnkey" locker rental service for event promoters and festival-goers alike. The company takes care of all the stages: the service of the reservation of a locker via an online platform, the delivery and the installation of the lockers on the location of the event, the hiring and the management of the employees during the event as well as the after-sales service. Locketgo also offers related logistical services such as high volume cell phone charging station rental and lost property management. On the side, Gabrielle also plays in a rock band!
On the show, we spoke about:
- How she left a safe job to launch her own startup
- Her passion for music led to the entertainment space
- Pressure of leaving safe job and starting her own job
- How she prioritizes her work
- The plan on scaling and pushing more features on her product
Gabrielle is super cool and I learned a lot about the events space. I hope that you enjoy the conversation!
