ABOUT Alexa von Tobel, Founder & CEO of LearnVest, Inc.
Alexa von Tobel is the founder and CEO of LearnVest.com, the award-winning financial planning company. Alexa developed the idea for LearnVest during her senior year at Harvard College, when she realized she, and most of her peers, had never had any formal education on how to effectively manage their finances. Alexa searched for reliable financial guidance and consistently came up overwhelmed or disappointed. Thus, the LearnVest mission was born – to make trusted personal financial information accessible to millions across the country.
Originally from Florida, Alexa received an A.B. in Psychology at Harvard College. Upon graduation, she worked as a trader at Morgan Stanley on their Proprietary Trading Desk before leaving to be the Head of Business Development at Drop.io, a venture backed start-up in NYC. She enrolled in Harvard Business School in the fall of 2008 only to take a leave of absence shortly after to launch LearnVest and pursue her dream of bringing financial literacy to millions of people everywhere.
Since launching LearnVest, Alexa has been widely quoted as a personal finance expert and entrepreneur in top tier business and consumer publications including: The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, InStyle, TechCrunch, and many more. In addition, Alexa has appeared on several local and national television shows including The Today Show, Good Morning America, and Anderson, among many others.
She was recently selected as a 2012 Fortune Most Powerful Women Entrepreneur, named “One of the Coolest Young Entrepreneurs” in Inc. Magazine’s 30 Under 30 feature, titled a “Woman to Watch” by Forbes, listed as one of “18 Women Changing the World” in Marie Claire, and selected as a 2011 Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
