Arteza, an arts and crafts supplies e-commerce company, announced that its board of directors has appointed Jennifer Fleiss to the board.
“I am thrilled to partner with the Arteza team as the business continues its rapid growth,” said Fleiss. “Working with experiential categories to build brands and connect communities in a digital age is my sweet spot, and Arteza has begun to build a loyal following at a time where creative outlets are more important than ever.”
Motivated by the early-stage entrepreneurial spirit of organizations, Fleiss brings the deep domain expertise and knowledge she has gained from her operating background to Arteza. Widely recognized for her role as co-founder of Rent the Runway, a premier subscription fashion service, Fleiss was also previously the co-founder and CEO of Jetblack, the first portfolio company in Walmart’s technology incubator. Fleiss has been honored with numerous recognitions including Inc. Magazine’s “30 Under 30”; Fortune Magazine’s “40 Under 40” and “Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs”; and Fast Company’s “Most Influential Women in Technology.”
Most recently, Fleiss announced that she joined Volition Capital as a venture partner, where she’ll focus on supporting early growth stage companies from the investor perspective. While in this role, she will continue to serve on the boards of Rent the Runway, Apollo Global Management, Party City, Shutterfly and, now, Arteza.
