Dean's Business Scholar's - Company Visit: FragranceX.com

On November 8, 2019, Dean’s Business Scholars have the opportunity to meet with an alumni Hofstra entrepreneur and tour FragranceX.com in Hauppauge, NY organized by the Center for Entrepreneurship. Space is extremely limited. A bus will take students from Hofstra to the company visit and then return to campus. The tour will be approximately an hour and a half long. The maximum number of students eligible to attend the company visit is 5, however, we will have a waiting list. Students are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

FragranceX is an online marketplace for perfume and cologne at the lowest prices founded in 2001. Their discount fragrance selection consists of over 9,500 brands of perfume, cologne, body lotion, and after shaves, including many discontinued perfumes and colognes. All fragrances are 100% authentic designer brands.  Students will be able to see the supply-chain system first hand and talk to the CEO, Ron Yakuel, about how he started this global company.  FragranceX.com was recognized three times in Inc magazine’s fastest growing privately held companies. Mr. Yakuel is a Hofstra alumni and member of the Center for Entrepreneurship Advisory Board.
