Mariam Naficy is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Minted since June 2007. Minted, Mariam's newest venture founded in 2007, is a crowd-sourcing design company that holds design competitions to source graphic design and lets its community vote to tell the company what to sell. The designs are then printed on paper in the form of wedding invitations), holiday photo cards and other personalized stationery and photo card products.

Mariam has pioneered new consumer Internet models since 1998, when she co-founded Eve.com, the first online retailer of cosmetics, upon graduating from business school. Eve.com grew to $10 million in annual sales in its first year and was sold successfully to Idealab for a reported $100 million in cash in 2000. The company was then sold to LVMH's Sephora in late 2000.

After Eve.com, Mariam served as the Vice President and General Manager of E-Commerce for The Body Shop, the international beauty goods retailer.

Mariam received her B.A. degree in Political Economy from Williams College and her MBA from Stanford's Graduate School of Business. While at Stanford, Mariam wrote The Fast Track, a guide to investment banking and management consulting published by Broadway Books that has sold over 50,000 copies, based on her pre-business school experience as an Analyst at Goldman Sachs.

Mariam started her career in investment banking as Analyst at Goldman Sachs and is an alumna of Stanford University's Graduate School of Business and Williams College.

Mariam serves as a Member of the Board of Directors at Polyvore and RealSelf.com and is an Angel Investor in 1000Memories, Beautylish, Crave and other companies.
