Two years ago, founder and CEO of The Borrowed Boutique Emma Hostetter was a stay-at-home mom. Today, her rental service for high-end and special-occasion children's clothing brings in $15k a month. Hostetter started her rental service through a Facebook page, but now she is leasing a space at The Edge in Fishers, IN, and is working with Fishers-based Sticksnleaves to develop a custom inventory-management system and e-commerce tools for the business. Although most of The Borrowed Boutique's revenue is generated by out-of-state customers, Hostetter plans to expand the business locally by offering services like fittings, pick-ups, and drop-offs. To learn more about why Hostetter is considered "a great role model for entrepreneurs and for thinking about the future economy of Indiana," see the full IBJ article here.
