JULIE GOLDMAN perfects life’s Grand Entrances with her non-slip fabric aisle runners. After earning her Master and Doctorate degrees from Columbia University, Julie was inspired by her own wedding to launch her wildly popular business The Original Runner Company in order to provide the world with the first non-slip fabric aisle runners for weddings and special events. After more than a decade in the industry, The Original Runner Company has sold millions of dollars of her unique aisle runners in more than twenty countries. Her celebrated creations have graced the weddings of Kim Kardashian, Kevin Jonas, Nicole Ritchie, Fergie & Josh Duhamel, Michael Jordan, Neil Diamond and Tracy Jordan to name a few. Whether it is creating a Yellow Brick Road, a replica football field, or even a completely
glittered aisle runner; Julie’s company can make any dream entrance a reality. The overwhelming success of The Original Runner Company has resulted in Julie appearing on dozens of the TV shows including “Shark Tank” and receiving the “Make Mine a Million” business award. Her business has also been featured in over 200 magazines as well as Crain’s NY Business, NY Daily News, NBC news, Lifetime Television, Oxygen, and Fox Business. A well know speaker and adjunct professor on entrepreneurship and small business growth, Julie loves to share what she has learned through her two successful businesses with other business owners.
