From a business launched in a New York City apartment to a booming fashion empire, designer Tory Burch has creativity and brains to spare. And in 2013 she became the second-youngest self-made female billionaire in America (Spanx founder Sara Blakely is youngest).
A model of Gemini generosity, Burch supports the arts and cancer research, and her company helps more than 30 nonprofits. She is dedicated to making sure that all entrepreneurs have a chance.
Her Tory Burch Foundation supports women's economic empowerment through loans, mentoring, and education. And the Obama Administration named her to the Presidential Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship, committed to developing the next generation of entrepreneurs around the world.
