Index Ventures Shines $4M on Stardoll.com

Justin Hibbard

Aimed at teen and pre-teen girls, Stardoll.com lets users dress celebrity dolls in sassy get-ups. Think paper dolls, only paperless. One-name entrepreneur Liisa started the Stockholm-based site as Paperdollheaven.com, a personal project, in 2002. The venture now boasts 900,000 registered members.

Mattias Miksche, former founder and CEO of E*Trade in Germany and Scandinavia, has joined as CEO.
