Jules Pieri, Co-Founder and CEO of The Grommet named to Fortune's 10 Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs List!

Jules Pieri, Fortunes Most Powerful Women Jules Pieri, Co-Founder and CEO of The Grommet.


What a wonderful end to summer it’s been for The Grommet.  Media buzz from outlets such as Quartz, Forbes and The Wall Street Journal (to name just a few!) have helped to elevate our brand and core mission in a way that we've never experienced. Our community of loyal followers feels stronger than ever and just last week we received the biggest news of all...

Fortune Magazine has named our Co-Founder & CEO, Jules Pieri, one of 2013’s Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs. Other honorees are CEO’s from EventBrite, BlogHer and more. Jules will attend a summit in October to celebrate the honor and other high profile women in attendance will include Marissa Mayer, Sheryl Sandberg and Tory Burch. Wow! To say that Jules is honored, excited and in awe of her fellow winners is an understatement.

Yet talking with Jules about the honor shows that she’s both humble and pragmatic. “It’s obviously a tremendous achievement for our company, but it also allows me to reach a broader, more influential audience for Title IX legislation for funding women's startups, a personal cause of mine” she said this week. Last month, she wrote a post on this subject on her personal blog and it was so well received that publications such as Boston Business Journal, Upstart Business Journal and The Huffington Post re-posted it.

It’s safe to say that 2013 has been a fantastic year for The Grommet. As we start to head into the holiday season (yes, we’re already thinking about holidays!) we can only hope that 2014 will be just as magical.

Jules, Joanne and our entire company have worked tirelessly to achieve success and we have you, our community to thank for helping us get where we are today. We literally wouldn’t be here without you.

Cheers to Jules and The Grommet team and thank all of YOU for the ongoing support!

When I get a break, I will be happy to contribute. I love the concept and the designs. Blessings to all of you. May you be favored always...just don't lose the vision...:)

    Congratulations Jules!! What an accomplishment for you, Joanne and the Grommet team, to be recognized and rewarded by Fortune and others!! Wishing you all continued success!!

  • Pauline Says:

    Congratulations, Jules! What amazing recognition for your hard work and the efforts of the whole Grommet team! Good things DO happen to good people and you are proof of that. The Daily Grommet has grown up and matured beautifully and I know you must all take such pride in what you have accomplished!

  • Jules Says:

    Oh man I just checked in to find all these nice comments. Thanks so much to all for your enthusiasm for our Grommets. I love that you "get" that you are supporting so much more than our own company here. To Deborah...yesterday our photographer told me that she keeps all her Photoshop "work" to herself. Which may explain the photo--all I can say is that it was news to me but I did not discourage her future edits. :)

  • Noelle Says:

    Jules- you do look fantastic in all of the photos, and congrats to you! Yet again, an inspiration :)
