Meet YEC’s Jenny Fleiss, Co-Founder and President of Rent the Runway
Do you dream of breaking into a new industry but lack the guts to just, well, go for it?
Are you too scared to make the leap even though you have evidence your idea is awesome?
Then look no further for startup inspiration than Jennifer (Jenny) Fleiss, President and Co-Founder of Rent the Runway. Jenny has a seriously incredible business background, with stints at Morgan Stanley and Lehman Brothers and a Harvard Business MBA. Not to mention starting a tutoring company in college.
What she DOESN’T have, though, is a fashion pedigree. (Other than great taste, obviously.)
And yet she co-founded Rent the Runway with her Harvard Business School section mate just 2 years ago… and already has over 1 million members, 150+ top designer brands, and an inventory of 25,000 dresses and 4,000 accessories.
That’s an incredible achievement after breaking into a brand-new industry. And we believe you can do the same, with a little advice from Jenny about testing the waters and executing your plan!
This Thursday, September 6th at 3 PM EST is your chance to pick Jenny’s brain about business plans (and why you don’t need one), testing your idea before you GO to market (she did it), the real value of an MBA for startup founders, tips on how to break into a brand new industry and revolutionize it — and finally, the dirt on what it really means to be a lifelong entrepreneur. Yes, we’re going to cover it all, or at least as much as we can, during our hour-long #StartupLab live chat presented by Citi.
Don’t miss this one — Jenny is a total rock star. (Don’t believe us? Check out this awesome blog post she wrote about pursing your idea — no matter how wild — and making it profitable.)
