Event Description:
Lil' Sidekick Founder Amy Vohs to speak at Square One DSM Startup Stories

Amy Vohs, Founder of Lil’ Sidekick, will be the guest speaker at the June Square One DSM Startup Stories event. The Lil’ Sidekick tether is an adaptable toy strap that keeps kids from dropping or throwing their toys away from them. Designed by a mom, it will secure anything from a small crayon to a big stuffed animal. The tether can also easily attach to anything such as strollers, carriers, grocery carts, bikes and more. Lil’ Sidekick is available at Walmart, Toys “R” Us, kohls.com and many other retailers around the world.

Vohs will talk about her journey of getting Lil’ Sidekick into big box retailers and her experiences with bootstrapping. She will also focus on how to gain investors and how she uses the available resources in Iowa to grow and maintain her business. Mike Colwell, Square One DSM Executive Director, will begin the presentation by interviewing Vohs and will then open up for questions from the audience.
