Learn More About Our Speaker

Jennifer (Jenny) Fleiss, President, is an entrepreneur at heart. She started her career at Morgan Stanley in the Strategic Planning Group crafting long-term company strategy. She then moved on to Lehman Brothers’ Asset Management Group where she was responsible for analyzing business growth opportunities through acquisitions, international expansion, and new product strategies. A natural leader, Jenny founded an essay-editing and coaching service for college applicants, and built the company into an online tutoring service.

 

In 2007, Jenny began at Harvard Business School where she met fellow co-founder and friend, Jennifer (Jenn) Hyman. As sectionmates, the two women would meet frequently to discuss entrepreneurial ideas, one of which was Rent the Runway. Designed to solve the common “closet full of clothes but nothing to wear” problem, Jenn and Jenny launched Rent the Runway in November 2009.

 

Now nearly two years into business, Rent the Runway has quickly grown to acquire over one million members and has signed on 150 top designer brands. With an inventory of 25,000 dresses and 4,000 accessories, and entry into new categories such as weddings and beauty, Rent the Runway has become the one-stop shop for life’s special occasions.

 

Jenny received her Bachelor of Arts from Yale University in 2005 graduating Cum Laude, and her Master’s of Business Administration from Harvard Business School in 2009. Jenny is a member of the New York Economic and Development Corporation, helping with corporate mentorship and advisory within the start-up community and a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2012 Award in the New York region.
