Wombi Rose studied Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering at Webb Institute, received a Masters degree from MIT, and joined McKinsey & Company before heading to Harvard Business School. While on a school trip to Vietnam, Wombi and his best friend John Wise discovered incredible hand-crafted paper cards, and by combining their engineering background with the ancient art form, they developed Slicegami (TM), and Lovepop was born. In 2015, Lovepop was featured on the holiday episode of Shark Tank, landing a deal from Mr. Wonderful, and since then the company has been featured on Good Morning America, 20/20, The View, and created one-of-a-kind pop-up art to reveal the winners at this year’s Billboard Music Awards.
