Co-founder, Six Apart, creator of Movable Type & TypePad
What you should know: “Mena Grabowski Trott and her husband Ben developed Movable Type for their own use in 2001, but it became immensely popular and they dove in full-time. By the time they were preparing their blog-hosting service TypePad, investors were knocking on the door. In 2004, the company grew from seven employees to 50, with Mena Trott serving as chief executive, as well as an interface designer. Today, having acquired LiveJournal and introduced rich-media sharing platform Vox, Six Apart’s software gives online voice to millions of people and organizations worldwide.”
