Rent the Runway is now over 10 years old and has raised up to $ 500 million, recently filing for IPO a a valuation north of $ 1 billion.
Jenny Fleiss is a co-founder of Rent the Runway and sits on the boards of several major companies, including Shutterfly, Party City and, of course, Rent the Runway. He is also a partner of Volition Capital along with Larry Cheng.
In an upcoming episode of TechCrunch Live, Fleiss and Cheng will sit down to discuss their fundraising philosophy and for Fleiss, how her experience building a unicorn affects early stage startup investments. They will also talk about the current fundraising landscape early on, which is almost unrecognizable from the environment that Fleiss gathered ten years ago.
