Noah Krinick: Founder of Solo Rugs
Noah Krinick has always been a creative force and an active entrepreneur. Now with his latest and most successful endeavor, he is providing a huge opportunity for luxury rugs and filling a void in their e-commerce space. As partner and founder of Solo Rugs, the first e-commerce website of its kind in the luxury rug industry, he is able to bring one-of-a-kind, hand-knotted luxury rugs to consumers all over the United States – at wholesale prices selling direct to the consumer.
A go-getter from the start, he earned his Bachelor of Science from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., graduating Suma Cum Laude with a major in Finance. During his four years there, Noah learned more than just classroom lessons. While studying for a semester abroad in Europe, he realized you oftentimes acquire new skills when not sitting at a desk.
Later, he went on to earn his MBA from Columbia University in New York, where he focused on strategy and entrepreneurship. By his early 20s, Noah was working in the strategy group at PepsiCo, focusing on competitive analysis and growth opportunities. Learning from that invaluable experience early in his career, he decided that he wanted to pursue a more entrepreneurial and creative path.
It was in 2014 that Noah teamed up with his current partners to expand the niche world of one-of-a-kind luxury rugs. This past fall, they launched their website, giving consumers unprecedented direct access to the broad spectrum of items that come into their warehouses, right in the heart of New York City. Solo Rugs has quickly become the premiere brand for luxury rugs in the e-commerce space.
In everything Noah has achieved over the course of his young but full career, one of his proudest contributions is running the charitable organization started in honor of his great-grandfather that vets and funds a variety of causes each year.
