Carly & Danielle (aka Skimm A & Skimm B) have long believed in toasting each win. With the ever-growing team at their innovative news & lifestyle company designed especially for millenials, there are a lot more champagne flutes to clink these days. Here, the cofounders are celebrating they're 5-year anniversary ~ a remarkable achievement for a startup. But, the learn-on-the-job entrepreneurs got in the habit of breaking out the bubbly long before they had made it to the big-time. Resolving to take time to acknowledge each step in the right direction was key to keeping each other motivated to make their shared vision happen.
These two former roomies & news producers quit their day jobs to launch a startup that has re-engaged millenials in the daily news cycle. Their addictive morning email blasts have drawn millions of subscribers along with many a high-profile admirer, like Katie Couric & Oprah. Today, theSkimm has graduated into a content empire & full-fledged lifestyle brand backed by VC funding while Danielle & Carly continue to innovate when it comes to apps, affiliates and campaigns for giving back.
