Seth Rosen is the co-founder of CustomMade — the largest online marketplace for custom goods that connects shoppers with talented “makers” to create one of a kind products. As a Boston native and graduate of both BU and Bentley, Rosen got his start in the finance world and quickly developed a penchant for custom made clothing. The frustrations and hassles of finding exceptionally made goods tailored to his own personal standards led him on a quest in 2008 to revolutionize the custom goods buying experience by leveraging the power of the internet.
After countless trips to woodworking and craft fairs around the country with his co-founder, Seth has helped rally a growing roster of more than 3,500 jewelers, couturiers, wood workers and metalworkers to revitalize CustomMade.com into a new kind of ecommerce option. Today, the burgeoning online bazaar is already on its way to becoming a prime shopping destination, receiving over 3 million visitors a year while handling $2 million in transactions each month.
