Blake Lezenski

Farfetch x Outlier Ventures
Program Manager
Blake Lezenski is the Farfetch Program Manager at Outlier Ventures. Blake joined Outlier Ventures in June 2021 coming from an impressive background in global VC, sales and operations.
Currently, Blake directs the Farfetch Dream Assembly Base Camp program and trains program associates while guiding a cohort of 8 startups. Blake also established best practices in building program-specific deal flow and unique domain insights into what makes a web3 luxury fashion project successful long-term. He oversees a variety of key strategic partnerships with Outlier Ventures and the relationship with Farfetch.

Deeply embedded in the global digital fashion network, Blake was selected for the advisory board of the Metaverse Fashion Council. Previously he has been supporting fashion tech founders as an investor and consultant. Blake has always expressed his passion for fashion by designing custom gender-neutral clothing, but currently, his focus is fully dedicated to defining the future of digital luxury fashion by helping the Farfetch Dream Assembly teams with strategy, execution and connections.

Earlier in his career, Blake worked with InnoEnergy VC as an investment manager where he built a pipeline of cleantech startups for the InnoEnergy fund, helping expand the company's presence to 13 countries. He selected teams and established partnerships with enterprise energy firms starting in Eastern Europe followed by the Middle East and Latin America.

In 2017, Blake switched industries and launched Beyond Capital, a consultancy firm advising founders, investors and companies on how to leverage blockchain technology to achieve their strategic goals. After learning computer programming in Indonesia, Blake got recruited by Uber and moved to Colombia to help grow Uber Eats in Central America and the Caribbean. He led the scaleup and implementation efforts within all of Latin America as well as the first data monetization project in the history of Uber.
Blake’s personal winning track record of angel investing helped him formulate a robust knowledge base, experience with investor relations and how to best support early-stage founders in a niche but rapidly growing digital fashion market.
