Polly Liu ’91 is the founder of Beau-coup.com, an online retailer specializing in wedding favors. The idea for the business came to Liu when she was planning her own wedding. “We knew there was a real need online for a one-stop wedding favors shop that offers unique and high quality items,” says Liu. “We also knew how stressful and emotional planning a wedding can be. Beau-coup’s mission is to help make the process a little less stressful, even enjoyable, by offering the most exceptional customer service and an unmatched selection of high quality guest favors at competitive prices.”
Liu earned her MBA from Stanford Graduate School of Business and founded Beau-coup.com in 2002. Over the last nine years the business has grown tremendously. Beau-coup employs 50 people and received over 10 million visits in 2010.
