Sophia Amoruso

NEW EXCLUSIVE
  • Entrepreneur
  • New York Times Best-Selling Author of #GIRLBOSS
  • Founder and CEO Girlboss, and Founder The Girlboss Foundation
  • Named by Forbes as “Fashion’s New Phenom”

As the founder of Girlboss, Sophia Amoruso is the creative visionary, entrepreneur, and industry disruptor who has forged an unprecedented path in building modern brands. Named by Forbes as “Fashion’s New Phenom” and featured on the cover of their June 2016 “Self Made Women” issue, Amoruso has gone from one of the most prominent figures in retail to a cultural thought leader.

Amoruso is the author of New York Times 18-week best-seller #GIRLBOSS , which was originally published on May 6, 2014 and has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide to date. Part memoir and part business book with an edge, #GIRLBOSS provides insights on entrepreneurship and career advice. In 2014, Amoruso launched The Girlboss Foundation, which awards financial grants of $15,000 to women in industries of design, fashion, music, and the arts, to help them build and grow their small businesses. To date, the Girlboss Foundation has awarded over $120,000 to the next generation of female entrepreneurs.

In October 2015, Amoruso debuted her podcast, Girlboss Radio, which has grown to over 100,000 weekly downloads. In October 2016, Amoruso released her second book Nasty Galaxy, a highly graphic and visual book that binds together the collective spirit of the Nasty Gal brand, Amoruso's personal brand, and the Girlboss ethos.

In 2016, The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) inducted Amoruso as a member, solidifying her position in the fashion landscape. Netflix has since adapted #GIRLBOSS into a 13-episode scripted comedy series written by Kay Cannon, with Charlize Theron and Amoruso serving as Executive Producers. Girlboss premiered in April 2017.

In March 2017, in tandem with the announcement of her newly formed Girlboss, Amoruso held the inaugural Girlboss Rally, a conference which brought together 500 women to share their wins, losses, life hacks, and more. Today, Amoruso is working closely with a talented team at Girlboss to produce daily content across a variety of digital channels to reframe the outmoded concept model of “success” for the modern woman. Amoruso released her third publication, The Girlboss Workbook , on October 24, 2017.

Rave Reviews About Sophia Amoruso
We had the honor of having Sophia Amoruso as our keynote speaker and she was AMAZING! Everyone loved her, the information she gave as a speaker has the attendees still raving days after the event. She was beyond kind, gentle, very easygoing and a complete joy to work with. She made every guest feel amazing. Her expertise in business is unmatched and her character speaks volumes as to the reason the universe has granted her such favor. I actually would love for her to come back because I can't even think of another speaker better to follow after her. So here's my take "She's going to be a hard act to follow"... we appreciated how humble, prompt and kind Sophia was.
