Over the past 15 years, Ali Koplar Wyatt has blazed her way through the lifestyle and culture startup world, beginning as one of the first employees at Refinery29, where she grew sales into the millions within four years and placed the company on the Inc500 for three consecutive years. She then became the first Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) at Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, launching the brand in the United States and introducing brand advertising. She also collaborated with Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso to launch Girlboss, a media company that redefines success for the modern woman. In 2018, she and Rebecca Minkoff co-founded the Female Founder Collective, a non-profit that carefully curates content and resources for future-focused women ready to wield their own business opportunities and meaningful connections. FFC also provides grants to female-founded businesses through its 501(c)3 and community, education and business resources through its membership portal, The 10th House.
