BIG NEWS for YEC member Kathryn Minshew. Her startup, The Muse, announced on Wednesday that it’s raised $16 million in a Series B funding round. “It’s incredibly important to me that every piece of advice people find is solid,” she says. “The people who use us are not just coming from a clickable link in a social feed, they’re going in and searching and finding the answers to their career questions. So the quality has to be very high across the board.” Congratulations!
