Big Cartel

Matt Wigham - Co-Founder of Big Cartel

Matt Wigham is the Co-founder and CEO of Big Cartel, a company that enables a wide variety of artists to create their own custom online shop and sell their work. Today, Big Cartel has generated over $1 billion in store sales since it launched, and $13 is made every second from one of their artists. Ironically, Matt never intended on Big Cartel becoming the massive company that it is today. Originally, it started out as a side project and hobby, and a way to help support and work with bands. This is a great story about a guy who simply followed his interests, kept creating things, worked hard, was patient, and through that created a company and organization that has helped thousands of people.
