Lauren Leto, Co-Founder/Author – Texts From Last Night, Bnter

Let’s put it this way: If you got a text from Lauren Leto last night, you’re probably doing pretty well for yourself. The Detroit beauty came to the city last year to capitalize on the success of Texts From Last Night, the addictive and often hilarious compendium of drunk messages you’ll never remember sending. Now she’s got a new startup, Bnter, and she’s making the Makery seem like a pretty damn cool place to be working these days. Oh, there’s also that book she’s writing. If you can keep up with the lovely Lauren Leto—and deal with her famous friends, like Tucker Max, who gave the ‘TFLN’ book a blurb—get her digits and send her a text that’s classy enough to keep it off her site.
