By Contributing Writer on April 7, 2013

Katie Finnegan ’05 spent her career in the retail sector as a merchandiser and management consultant. Frustrated by the e-commerce landscape, in 2012, she launched Hukkster, a platform that allows online shoppers to tag their preferences anytime, anywhere, and gain real-time access to specific products the moment they go on sale. The same year, Hukkster raised a $1 million round of seed funding led by the Winklevoss twins and including retail executives such as the CEO of Tumi (Jerome Griffith) and the president of Henri Bendel (Chris Fiore).
