Danielle Weisberg


Co-Founder and Co-CEO
When friends, roommates, and colleagues Danielle Weisberg & Carly Zakin walked away from their jobs as NBC News Producers at the tender age of 20-something neither imagined they would soon be the architects behind one of the most celebrated startups in millennial culture: theSkimm.

Simply put, theSkimm is a daily email that quite literally skims the news on behalf of its readers, allowing millions of intelligent, busy subscribers to access current events easily and efficiently without sacrificing their routines. Honored in Forbes 2015 ‘30 under 30 in Media,’ Adweek's ‘Young Influentials’ 2015 and by the Goldman Sachs Builders & Innovator Summit as one of the most 100 Intriguing Entrepreneurs of 2014, theSkimm boasts an industry-crushing open rate and a growing team; and Danielle and Carly have no intention of slowing down - in the spring of 2016, they launched Skimm Ahead, a news and events app for iPhone that can integrate directly into your calendar, giving you everything you need to know to make you smarter about the future.
