The Fortune Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs program recognizes 10 entrepreneurs each year who are extraordinary innovators, groundbreakers and game changers.
The Fortune MPW Entrepreneurs program began in 2009, and many of our honorees have lead their companies to remarkable growth. Lynn Jurich’s SunRun has expanded to become a leading home solar service provider, with over 35,000 customers. Jenn Hyman’s and Jenny Fleiss’ Rent the Runway has changed the way women shop for dresses on the web. Sheila Marcelo has successfully taken Care.com public—and her web startup now sponsors the MPW Entrepreneurs program. These are just a few of the amazing women who have been selected MPW Entrepreneurs.
