Founder @DailyMuse, Wall Street Journal & Harvard Biz Review contributor, globe trotter. Forbes 30-under-30 & INC 15 women to watch in tech. YC alum. I get things done. http://themuse.com
Raised $1.2M seed round for The Muse from venture & angel investors, including Y Combinator, 500 Startups, Eric Ries, Cathie Black, several venture capital firms. I was not naturally good at fundraising & had to learn it as I went, so I'm probably most helpful for people who are intimidated or unsure about how to go about raising money.
Built The Muse from 0 - 1 M unique monthly active users (0-100,000 in the first 5 months with zero spend), now at 1 million unique MAUs
I've coached countless entrepreneurs in how to build a company culture and use it to find, attract, hire, onboard & retain awesome people for your company
I've spoken on CNN, Bloomberg & Fox; been published in the WSJ & HBR; and seen The Muse discussed on everything from TechCrunch to the Chicago Tribune. We've never paid a PR firm, and there are a few tips I've learned along the way.
