Vanity Fair’s New Founders Fair to Feature Reese Witherspoon, Tory Burch, Sasheer Zamata, and Founders of TheSkimm

Women entrepreneurs from technology, fashion, media, and other industries will talk about why they started their companies, how they built their businesses, and the lessons they’ve learned as part of Vanity Fair’s first Founders Fair conference.

Confirmed speakers include actor and producer Reese Witherspoon, who also is the founder of lifestyle brand Draper James and media company Hello Sunshine; Kirsten Green, founder, Forerunner Ventures; Julie Wainwright, founder of C.E.O. of the RealReal; Julie Deane, founder and C.E.O. of Cambridge Satchel Co.; and Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg, co-founders and co-C.E.O.s of theSkimm. The conference will conclude with Tory Burch, C.E.O. and creative director, Tory Burch LLC, in conversation with Vanity Fair Editor Graydon Carter.

The conference takes place on April 20 at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn, New York, and is presented by Condé Nast.

Former Google executives-turned-entrepreneurs Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan (C.E.O. and founder of Drawbridge) and Stephanie Tilenius (C.E.O. and founder of Vida Health) will talk about how the search giant prepared them—and didn’t—to launch their businesses. Cindy Whitehead, who sold Sprout Pharmaceuticals to Valeant for $1 billion, will share the pros and cons of selling a business. And Saturday Night Live’s Sasheer Zamata and Jennifer Danielson, president of Lorne Michaels’ Above Average Productions, will discuss how digital platforms have enabled a new generation of female artists to become media entrepreneurs.

The conference will also feature serial entrepreneurs such as Nancy Lublin, founder of Crisis Text Line and Dress for Success; Caterina Fake, who co-founded Flickr and Hunch, and founded Findery and StorySet; and Gina Bianchini, who co-founded Ning with Marc Andreessen before launching Mightybell. Additional speakers will be announced soon.

Founders Fair grew from the stories of entrepreneurs who’ve spoken at Vanity Fair’s New Establishment Summit, now entering its fourth year.

Dell is a presenting sponsor of Founders Fair. Lifetime, Barneys, and 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge are supporting sponsors.

Participation in the conference is by invitation only. More information on the event, including a complete list of confirmed speakers, may be found on the Founders Fair site.
