#GWILaunch

We are gearing up to launch our business this Thursday - November 3rd, 2016 at the Launch Day for the Iowa Startup Accelerator. We will have six minutes to share the story of our business on stage at the Paramount Theater in Cedar Rapids, IA.  

This is the day that all accelerators look forward to as it is a presentation to show what each company has worked on during the last three months to take their idea from concept to having customers. We have watched numerous videos and listened to tons podcasts of other launch days otherwise known as 'Demo Days' in the startup world and are excited to have the opportunity to be part of one.

Our CEO Allison will be the one presenting on stage with the other five CEOs from the startups that have gone through our accelerator with us. She will be sharing how she got the idea for Girls With Ideas, what we have learned along the way, and the vision for our company.

In honor of our official launch, we will be sharing how you can get our leadership quiz for free. So if you have been wondering whether you are a lightning bolt, heart, arrow, or anchor leader you won't have to wait much longer! .
