Alexa von Tobel

Founder & CEO, LearnVest

About This Expert

Von Tobel has been included in lists like Business Insider’s 2010 “Silicon Alley 100,” Inc. Magazine’s “30 under 30: The Top Young Entrepreneurs of 2010,” “Women to Watch” by Forbes, “18 Women Changing the World” in Marie Claire, and BusinessWeek’s annual list of “Best Young Tech Entrepreneurs.”

LearnVest offers online budgeting calculators, video chats with certified financial planners on the company’s staff, and free e-mail tutorials on topics such as opening an IRA.

Von Tobel likens LearnVest to an online version of “The Suze Orman Show”, but with the goal of reinforcing positive finance habits early on. “Suze Orman helps 45-year-old women get out of debt,” she says. “Why not reach 20-year-olds to keep them from getting into debt?”

Alexa von Tobel feels passionately about making personal finance education fun and accessible to everyone. In addition to LearnVest, Alexa is the co-founder of L.W.A.L.A., a 501c3 focused on fighting HIV/AIDS in Africa.
