 Rob Forbes Biography

Rob Forbes is a serial entrepreneur with an eye for design. He earned his MBA from Stanford GSB in 1985, and founded Design Within Reach in 1999 on the premise that he could disrupt the furniture and decorator businesses by selling modern designer furniture direct to consumers over the internet. The company reached $100 million in revenue in less than 5 years and now sells through 43 stores. He also launched PUBLIC Bikes, which designs and sells commuter bikes. "Most business people underestimate the value of visual thinking," says Forbes.
