Richard Bailey

Former Startup Runway Finalist

Co-Founder/CEO, GrpFit


I am a current Senior Product Manager at SiriusXM + Pandora and Co-Founder of GrpFit, which is a health and fitness platform aimed at improving the health of the Black community. As a former Startup Runway finalist, I know firsthand how impactful this organization can be for underrepresented founders. And now more than ever, it is important for us to continue to fight forward by providing the necessary resources to close the funding gap for women and people of color.

I’m also a part of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Alumni Council for my business school, and I continuously look for ways to pay it forward. Startup Runway’s mission fits hand-in-hand with who I am as a person, so I am excited about the opportunity to contribute.
