CTO Julia Grace and CEO Tracy Osborn are featured in this month's Inc. print magazine for WeddingLovely. By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)
WeddingLovely founders Julia Grace and Tracy Osborn have something to celebrate - getting in the print edition of Inc magazine this month! The article at Inc. online asks "Will Investors Say 'I Do' to This Wedding Startup?"
Women 2.0 talked to CEO Tracy Osborn about how she got the great press coverage for her startup. She told Women 2.0 -
"We had some original interest from Inc. a few months back during demo day for 500 Startups but the feature was put on hold until the summer wedding months. It's one of the best things about getting into a popular incubator, since the press from demo day can pique a reporter's interest and bleed into additional press. The delay worked out too, because we decided to delay fundraising from demo day in order to launch a new product first."
Congrats to the founders of WeddingLovely - it's great to see women entrepreneurs grace the covers and pages of business and entrepreneurship magazines on store shelves!
