Just ask Isabella Massenet, the daughter of Net-a-Porter founder Natalie Massenet, who revolutionised the fashion industry by founding the luxury retail portal in 2000. In 2015, the entrepreneur sold her stake for US$70 million, after already bagging US$50 million in 2010 when she sold the company to Richemont, per The New York Times and The Guardian.
