The co-founder and chief marketing officer of Angie's List, Hicks -- a 1995 graduate of DePauw University -- was one of three "Eye-Opening Women" featured in a segment on CBS This Morning.

The live interview included Lori Greiner, inventor and QVC host, and Jennifer Hyman, co-founder and CEO of Rent the Runway. The three discussed the contributions of women in the start-up world.
