Navigating media’s ups and downs with theSkimm co-founders


Welcome back to Found, where we get the stories behind the startups.

This week Becca flew solo with Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg, the co-founders and co-CEOs of theSkimm, a digital media company delivering news through a newsletter targeted at millennial women. Zakin and Weisberg talked about what market gap they wanted theSkimm to fill. They also talked about:

  • Riding the bumpy roller coaster of the digital media landscape over the past decade.
  • What it was like pitching a millennial women-focused product to male VCs.
  • Why they decided to be co-CEOs and why they think the strategy works for them.
