A new class of models of dynamical supersymmetry breaking is proposed. The models are based on SU(NC) gauge theories with NF(<NC) flavors of quarks and singlets. Dynamically generated superpotential exhibits runaway behavior. By embedding the models into conformal field theories at high energies, the runaway potential is stabilized by strong quantum corrections to the Kähler potential. The quantum corrections are large but nevertheless can be controlled due to superconformal symmetry of the theories.
