Julie Stevanja is founder and CEO of e-commerce powerhouse Stylerunner. Founded in 2012 after a stint in London while working for start-up tech streaming service MUBI, Stevanja’s lightbulb moment struck when she struggled to find on-trend activewear to wear to her daily Bikram yoga class.
Identifying a gap in the women’s fashion market and inspired to support women leading healthy, active lifestyles by providing them with product they feel great in, Stevanja founded Stylerunner.
The dedicated destination for premium designer activewear and athleisure wear brands has grown massively in just six years since launching, established itself as a global leader in its category.
Carrying leading international brands including Nike, adidas, Asics, Puma and New Balance, Stevanja has also successfully launched three private label best-seller brands: New Guard, Flightmode and Stylerunner.
Accolades collected by Stevanja and Stylerunner include being named Young Retail Entrepreneur of the Year by the World Retail Congress in 2016, inclusions in Deloitte’s Tech 50 list, BRW Fast Starters, Inside Retail Top 50 in eCommerce, the Veuve Clicquot New Generation Award and most recently the Women in Digital Female Founder of the Year Award.
