Stephanie Horbaczewski, founder & CEO, StyleHaul

This fashionista went from working in a clothing store while getting her JD/MBA to regional director of marketing for Saks Fifth Avenue before launching the first online video network for fashion, shopping, and beauty on YouTube last year. Instead of going solo and trying to gain traction on a brand new platform, she was far more strategic: Horbaczewski partnered with the founders of online gaming entertainment network Machinima, which already had cemented itself in the YouTube ecosystem. StyleHaul’s 1,270 channels now attract 48 million unique viewers a month and after successfully raising $4.4 million in 2012, StyleHaul is close to closing its second round of funding. In 2013 she plans to expand globally--and beyond YouTube--as well as make the company’s first moves in commerce and product.
