about the company

Founders

Anthony Soohoo is Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Dot & Bo, the first home furnishings brand for the millennial generation. Through a story-centric experience that encourages product discovery and engagement, the company is transforming the way people decorate their homes. A veteran of the media and technology industries, Soohoo launched Dot & Bo in 2013 to solve for two concerns that millennials face: creating a dream home shouldn’t require paying an interior decorator and furniture shopping should be a more enjoyable and inspiring experience. Dot & Bo’s interplay of commerce and storytelling replicates the traditional window shopping experience which accounts for a massive 80%+ of retail shopping and has largely remained offline - until now. Since its inception, Dot & Bo has grown rapidly, attracting over 5 million members across the U.S. Prior to founding Dot & Bo, Soohoo co-founded and led Rumpus, a health and wellness mobile company, as Chief Executive Officer from 2011 to 2012. From 2007 to 2011, Soohoo served as Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Entertainment Division at CBS Interactive which included CBS.com, CBS Audience Network, TV.com, The Insider.com, Chow, Chowhound, UrbanBaby, and CBS Interactive Web Original Studio. During his tenure, Soohoo helped grow the CBS Interactive Entertainment Division to become one of the leading entertainment networks on the web. He joined CBS with its acquisition of Dotspotter, one of the fastest growing community-powered entertainment properties on the Internet where he served as Co-Founder and CEO. Prior to Dotspotter, Soohoo held product and leadership roles at Yahoo!, Inktomi and Apple. Soohoo earned his bachelor's degree from the University of California, Davis and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He has been featured in TechCrunch's “40 Over 40” list and The Hollywood Reporter's “Digital Power” list as one of the top 50 executives leading the charge in new media. He resides in Palo Alto and is an advisor and investor to a number of consumer startups.
