BaubleBar — Co-founders Amy Jain and Daniella Yacobovsky (both HBS ’10) aren’t just former investment banking colleagues and HBS classmates, they also share the same birthday. They’re working on making BaubleBar the “go-to destination for fashion jewelry without the markup of a middle man,” Jain tells me. The startup is funded by Accel Partners, Lerer Ventures, Founder Collective, and a crop of angels, including Harvard Business School professor Lena Goldberg. Both founders worked in other jobs for a few months after finishing school, but quit in August 2010 to work on BaubleBar full-time. “We were really fortunate that we had of a couple classes ahead of us that had really successful women entrepreneurs coming out of it, who we were able to go to for motivation, guidance, and advice,” says Jain.
