Kristin Leiber

The L3 Hostel
Dallas/Fort Worth
Kristin Leiber is thrilled to serve Dallas Startup Week for her second year, this time as the Hospitality Track Co-Captain and a member of the DSW18 Planning Committee for Special Events! As a CPA with a background in accounting/finance but with a heart for people, Kristin now spends her time founding The L3 Hostel, a forthcoming Downtown Dallas hostel and lounge. A passion project of many years, The L3 Hostel is a Dallas-based travel community championing affordable, modern travel and promoting the sharing of spaces, lives, and experiences worldwide. Additionally, she freelances as a conference and event planner, most recently for The Power of One Conference, a conscious and intention living conference in Grapevine, TX, as well as a coordinator at The Dallas Entrepreneur Center. Equally as important as her career activities are Kristin’s volunteer commitments as an ambassador for Sofar Sounds, which creates intimate, pop-up, live music experiences in everyday spaces, as well as an advocate for foster children with Dallas CASA. In her free time, you can find Kristin perusing estate sales, jamming to live music, or listening to one of her (millions of) podcasts covering everything from business pitches to Bravo TV breakdowns. Kristin lives in the Oak Lawn neighborhood with her husband and dog.
