Carly Zakin teamed up with longtime friend and fellow journalist Danielle Weisberg to create theSkimm, a daily newsletter aimed at sparking the interest of millennials who often avoid traditional news sources.

Zakin and Weisberg met while studying abroad in Rome. On her return to America, Zakin graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2008, briefly interned at CNBC in New Jersey, then worked for MSNBC and Lifetime, creating documentaries and reality television, before joining NBC’s Peacock Productions in New York as an associate producer on their news programming. It was there that she reconnected with Weisberg, and in 2012 the pair quit NBC to create theSkimm, a daily email digest that recasts current events using conversational language, broader context, and a format that breaks stories up into smaller bytes, all geared towards how millennials digest information. In the past 3 years, theSkimm has grown to 16 staffers and 1.5 million subscribers. Keenly aware of how hard it is to change careers, Zakin founded HigherWrite in 2011 to offer resume advice and interview training to clients. Alongside Weisberg, she also lends her expertise to Streetwise Partners and the KIND Fund.

The Skimm Two friends in our 20s, who hail from New York and Chicago.

Our startup romance is one for the books -- we met on a rainy day in Rome while we were both studying abroad in college. We bonded over a mutual love of fried artichokes. What we didn't know as we struggled to order in Italian, was that we'd reconnect years later working in our own country's capital. By that point, we had become professional storytellers, as producers for NBC News -- working in breaking news, political news, and documentaries. We clicked as colleagues, as friends, and as roommates, and it didn't take long for theSkimm to take off from our living room couch.

News is not only our career, it's our passion. Because of this, we have always been the go-to source for friends seeking the scoop on current events or breaking news. We soon realized three things: Reading the news is time consuming; Wanting to read the news is a hobby; lastly, not everyone has the time or interest.
