Jenn Hyman, Co-founder & CEO Rent the Runway

Girlboss Radio with Sophia Amoruso - April 14, 2016 - 46:53

Jenn Hyman spotted a trend. She saw companies like Netflix and Spotify putting our music and movies in the cloud and realized our closets were next. So in 2009, she and co-founder Jennifer Fleiss founded Rent the Runway, an online service that provides designer dress and accessory rentals. The company now boasts well over five million subscribers, and Jenn has been named Fortune Magazine’s “Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs” and Fast Company’s “Most Influential Women in Technology.” On the episode Jenn and Sophia discuss what it means to be 'sweet' in the workplace, meeting with Diane von Furstenberg, and never taking 'no' for an answer.
