On the eve of LearnVest's announcement that the New York-based startup has just raised an additional round of financing, we wanted to share a conversation with founder Alexa von Tobel about setting large organizational goals and seeking funding to grow. This conversation was shot at TED Women after von Tobel had taken funding from Accel Partners, and she describes her idea for providing personal finance guidance that can be more personalized than one-size-fits-all books for people without the resources for financial advisors. Among her goals? Keeping people in their 20s and 30s from ever getting into debt and educating more than 10 million women over the next few years.
