Good Jobs Accelerator company Spotlight:Girls was just featured in an article in the online daily Next City. In the piece (available here), reporter Oscar Perry Abello interviews founders Lynn Johnson and Allison Kenny about their growing business.
The pair talk about their values, about the their company's recent growth – which they've built to revenues of over $400K, and how they plan to scale their mission by taking their summer camps, and in-school and after-school programs nationwide within the next two years.
In the piece, Allison and Lynn talk about raising capital in the Bay Area and the benefits (and difficulties) that competing in such a dynamic marketplace brings. The pair also elaborate on the types of funding they've secured, explain the differences in capital types, and talk about crowdfunding their business.
It's a great read and a inside look at an exciting business that we've gotten to know very well as Spotlight:Girls progressed through our Good Jobs Accelerator.
