Laurel Touby
startup investor/advisor
host, CBS Interactive's "Secrets of Successful Startups"
Successfully started in 1996, back when Netscape was the go-to browser and Google was just a twinkle in anyone's eye. Raised $1 mm in seed capital from Bill Ackman, who was then running hedge fund Gotham Partners (now Pershing Square), as well as from Martin Peretz, a private investor. Touby survived two recessions, pivoted, managed growth with minimal resources, developed audience online via social marketing and created new, money-making product lines.

She may be best known for her trademark feather "boa," which she sported at her monthly media parties so that she could be found in the crowd. Following the sale of her company for $23 mm, she began advising small seed-stage startups and angel investing. She left in June, 2011 and continues to touch the entrepreneurial community in various ways, including via a monthly co-hosted Cereal Entrepreneurs breakfast, ongoing mentoring via TechStars and hosting a weekly online tv show called “Secrets of Successful Startups” for CBSi.
