Store Nº8 —
Last month, we had the exciting honor to announce the launch of Store No 8 at Shoptalk. Our mission is to be the force driving commerce forward at a time when emerging technologies influence all aspects of consumers’ lives. We recognize that one of the most crucial parts of this mission is developing a team that will allow us to achieve these goals and finding the talent with the proven track record to drive innovation forward in both concept and practice.
That is why we are thrilled to announce today that Jenny Fleiss will join us as Co-founder and CEO of our first portfolio company. This new company will develop highly-personalized, one-to-one shopping experiences.
Jenny is a trailblazer in her field and has spent her career advancing ideas that have shaped retail as we know it today. As Co-founder of Rent the Runway, she saw the expansion of the company into a globally recognizable brand and pioneered a new retail model. Under Jenny’s leadership, this new company will be a jumping off point for Store No 8’s mission to shape the future of commerce.
Our team has a powerful vision for what retail can look like today and what it will be in the future. By empowering top level talent to lead these portfolio companies and work with autonomy, we’re able to attract true industry innovators like Jenny. We are also thankful for the support from the Walmart and Jet teams, who share our passion for driving the future of retail. We look forward to announcing more about the company in the coming months but for now, please join us in welcoming Jenny to the Store No 8 team.
