What problem is your work helping to solve?

My Just Wanna Quilt Podcast and Entrepreneur Project is helping micro and family run quilting and craft businesses navigate through the legal and basic business issues that arise.

What solution are your working toward and why is it innovative? 

This is a platform that will bring together all kinds of resources and selling opportunities.  We are building a national brand that will allow smaller brands an opportunity to become known.

What applications does your research have for Tulane entrepreneurs and the broader business community? 

I think the work we are doing can be applied to any entrepreneur/family based business situation.  I’m hoping the resources we develop might be included in other spaces at Tulane and other programs at the business and law schools.
