Spanx founder returns to Bay Area, offering inspiration at entrepreneur summit

March 20, 2020

Sara Blakely is a rock star to a crowd of business innovators and entrepreneurs at the Synapse Summit in Tampa. She introduced the world to an undergarment called Spanx 20 years ago.

“When I invented Spanx, I heard ‘no’ for two years, but I was trained not to let that stop me,” said Blakely, who made cold calls selling copiers before finding her fortune with Spanx.
