Rent the Runway Foundation

Rent the Runway’s co-founders, Jenn and Jenny, felt fortunate that they had been able to overcome the barriers in women’s paths to entrepreneurship and wanted to give back to the next generation of female founders.

In 2015, just five years after founding Rent the Runway, they launched the Rent the Runway Foundation to put their lessons and experience into action.

Created in partnership between the Rent the Runway Foundation and UBS, Project Entrepreneur is on a mission to even the playing field for women in entrepreneurship.

Through programming, a venture competition, and an accelerator, Project Entrepreneur gives early-stage female founders access to the resources and networks necessary to build scalable, economically-impactful companies.
