By Sheela Raman Robin Liss, a Tufts student who at 13 started her business reviewing camcorders for consumers, is gaining fame as an entrepreneur.
She's a camcorder expert with two websites and 12 employees. She's also 21. Until a crew from ''CBS Sunday Morning" landed on the Tufts University campus to interview Robin Liss, most of her college friends had no idea what she was up to. Little about the 21-year-old outwardly reveals her fascination with electronics or her business acumen. But Liss has been running a website that reviews camcorders since she was 13 years old. She has grown the business into a premiere source of consumer information, started a second site that reviews digital cameras, and -- with a year to go as a Tufts undergraduate -- employs 12 people from her offices in Davis Square. With camcorderinfo.com
and digitalcamerainfo.com, which are funded completely by advertising, Liss has carved an identity as an entrepreneur, and even a political warrior, at a tender age.
