212: Take Charge of Your Own Success: A View from Insiders

Lorna Borenstein is Founder & CEO of Grokker, a community-driven content network offering expert-led fitness, yoga, meditation, and cooking videos. The idea for Grokker came to Ms. Borenstein while on a multi-year sabbatical, where she became frustrated with the lack of high-quality instructional videos available on the Internet, as well as the difficulty in finding them aggregated in one place.

Prior to her sabbatical, Ms. Borenstein was President of publicly-traded Move Inc. She also held a number of executive positions at Yahoo! including Chief of their global personals online dating service and Head of Marketing for their multi-billion dollar worldwide Search & Marketplace businesses (Shopping, Travel, Autos, etc.). Ms. Borenstein entered the Internet world in 2000, when she launched eBay Canada out of her guest room in Toronto, and went on to serve as eBay Inc.'s Vice President & General Manager.

Before discovering her passion for consumer technology, Ms. Borenstein served as Assistant Legal Counsel at Hewlett Packard and practiced law in both the U.S. and Canada. She is fluent in several languages, an avid yogi, and an active supporter and fundraising member of various charities.
