Susan Lyne to run AOL’s ‘Built By Girls’ start-up fund

Yesterday AOL appointed Susan Lyne to lead The BBG Fund, a VC fund that will focus on early stage investments in women-led, consumer focussed internet start-ups. The fund will make seed and Series A investments, with a focus on multi-platform media, services and commerce.
