And now, for this week’s prescription:

On this week’s dose, we have Katie Castillo-Wilson, founder and CEO of TapOnIt, the multi-image business texting platform based out of beautiful Davenport Iowa.

Katie and her sister, Sara, started the business in 2015 when text message marketing was only just getting off the ground.

They have since evolved the business into a SaaS which offers self service to small businesses in addition to more comprehensive solutions for mid to large businesses.

In the interview, you will hear about Katie’s background and how TapOnIt has grown into the company it is today, including a major pivot in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Stick with us as she breaks down what it has been like as a woman founder building a business out of Iowa, not a combination we’re typically used to in venture.

Tune in to hear Katie’s valuable advice to females looking to get into venture, some of her go-to entrepreneurship resources, and a scrumptious woman-founded startup out of Iowa to keep your eye out for.

It was a blast to have Katie on this week’s dose. Honored to call her our newest Pillgrim.
