Meet Me at the EXPO: Emily Carlson, WRITTEN Apparel

If the world is a stage, we should all be ready to put our best self out there, right? Enter Emily Carlson, Founder, Designer and #bossbabe of WRITTEN Apparel. Meet Emily in the Entrepreneur Showcase at Innovation EXPO on Tuesday, Sept. 19. Every woman is born to write her own life story, tell her own tale, and be her own best-selling author. Whether she is writing her own rules in the boardroom, writing her own agenda as she scales the corporate ladder, or writing her own career path by turning her dreams into reality, the WRITTEN Woman is a force to be reckoned with.

In homage to this fierce and fashionable woman, WRITTEN Apparel specializes exclusively in elevating an iconic wardrobe staple: the pencil skirt. By making these statement pieces available for a limited time only, each pencil skirt is a rare and special addition to the WRITTEN Woman’s wardrobe.

At last year’s EXPO, Emily was finishing the Iowa Startup Accelerator. Join us on Tuesday, Sept. 19th and catch up with Emily and learn how WRITTEN has grown over the last year.


The support and guidance EDC provided Apache gave us a platform to more clearly flush out and define our strategy. We utilize The Recipe as our planning platform. EDC, in no small part, has been part of our growth and success!
