Clara Shih may have one of the most impressive experience sections on all of LinkedIn. After a yearlong stint at Microsoft, Shih joined Google just four months after it went public in late 2004. She developed the first social business application, Faceforce, during her time at Salesforce in 2007 and wrote the bestselling book, The Facebook Era, in 2009. Shih has also served on the board of directors at Starbucks for almost 4 years. Her company Hearsay Social raised more than $51 in venture capital and is a preferred partner with LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Google.
In her latest post on LinkedIn, "Lessons from a new mom in tech, 3 months post-launch," Shih wrote: "Life, especially tech life, is full of trade-offs. But being a mom and running a company are not zero-sum." Shih is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
