New venture: Fablogue.com
Last year's profile
Where she is now: Rana Mumtaz shifted the business model for Fablogue, a site designed to help people discover fashion items, from selling ads around content to actually selling merchandise from up-and-coming designers. She realized an ad-supported model was unlikely to work, particularly in a recession. After months of recruiting clothing, accessory, and jewelry designers, she retooled the site with an online store expected to launch next month.
Mumtaz is self-funding Fablogue, and though the business had no revenue in 2009, the former finance manager isn't planning to return to the corporate world. Mumtaz was accepted into Astia, a nonprofit business accelerator for women, last summer, and hopes the new e-commerce business model will be a faster route to profitability.
