Frustrated with the lack of career resources for ambitious, professional women, these three ex-McKinsey consultants realized they were sitting on a huge market opportunity. So they founded the online career community The Daily Muse. They launched in September and went from zero to more than 70,000 monthly job-seekers in three months. They have women like Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington, Google VP of Location and Local Services Marissa Mayer, and New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly doling out career tips and syndication deals with Forbes, Inc., Huffington Post, and Business Insider. In the works: Revenue-generators like a job search platform to help women uncover interesting jobs at new companies, and professional development courses for a fee.
