Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post, announces she will step down in the next few weeks. Why does she decide to leave the company which she launched 11 years ago?
Just as what she says on Twitter today: “I thought HuffPost would be my last act. But I’ve decided to step down as HuffPost’s editor-in-chief to run my new venture, Thrive Global.”
The website of Thrive Global is under construction at the moment, but we still can obtain some general information about this startup.
About Thrive Global
Thrive Global is corporate and consumer wellbeing and productivity platform, founded and led by Arianna Huffington, which has closed its Series A funding round. Thrive Global’s mission is to change the way we work and live.
The platform will provide science-based training, content, commerce and support to help worldwide individuals and companies to reduce stress, burnout. Improving health and productivity is Thrive Global’s another offer.
In the fall of 2016, Thrive Global will be launched and located in New York. Let’s see what we can monetize from it in autumn.
Arianna Huffington, who is 66 years old, decides to devote her rest of time to a new startup. The passion and courage that she shows just echo what she says, “It’s time to move from knowing what to do to actually doing it.”
All the best with your new venture!
