The genius behind Her Campus is undeniable.  There is a huge gap in the market for 18 to 20 somethings (maybe it has something to do with our financial status…).  The site’s revenue in 2010 was reported as $40,000 with a projected 2011 revenue reaching $1 million.  Not too bad for a five-employee business.


Stephanie Kaplan, Windsor Hanger, and Annie Wang, Founders of Her Campus 

A trio of Harvard students take a campus publication online and discover a promising business opportunity. Harvard classmates Stephanie Kaplan, Windsor Hanger, and Annie Wang met in 2007 while working on Freeze, a campus publication that focused on fashion. The three were responsible for transitioning the annual print magazine to an online publication with weekly and daily content.

The site focuses on typical magazine topics; beauty, health, fashion, celebrities, ect.  Each element of the magazine is tailored to the campus collegiette. The site offers information about scholarships, intern opportunities, and leadership positions that would rarely be found in a typical issue of Lucky or People.
