Jelt founder, Jen Perry, recently had the opportunity to be the featured guest on Beautifully Equipped, a new Bozeman-based podcast with goals to inspire the art of collaboration and fresh perspectives. In this episode, Jen shares her journey to create a business that has a positive impact on social, cultural and environmental issues.
Jen speaks about her unconventional path in creating Jelt, how/why she moved manufacturing from China to a women’s state prison even though production cost were higher, how contributing to humanity and the ecosystem has always been her number one priority, and how collaboration is a key to her success.
If any of these topics are top-of-mind for you or your business, this episode will inspire you to get creative and make it happen.
Thanks to Jen, Jackie, Kate, and Jen for choosing to highlight Jelt and for the amazing final product.
