In 2005, Catherine Cook and her brother David had an idea for a startup. The high schoolers flipped through a yearbook and wanted to make a digital version.
The 15-and-16-year-olds got to work and created MyYearbook. In the 6-year span, the duo raised $17 million in financing, grew the site to 20 million users, and generated 1.2 billion monthly pageviews. Today, a publicly-traded Latino social network, Quepasa, announced its $100 million acquisition of MyYearbook.
