[CHICAGO] - Spark by Gabby’s founder and CEO Gabby Lubin has been accepted into the Get Sh!t Done traction accelerator for startups. The seven-week virtual program supports women entrepreneurs in achieving the results they need to scale to generational impact.
Founded by Alex Batdorf, an entrepreneur who co-founded ZipFit, Get Sh!t Done is on a mission to increase the proportion of female entrepreneurs building million-dollar companies from 1.7% to 10%. As Alex built ZipFit to a multi-million dollar startup that was eventually acquired, she grew frustrated that female entrepreneurs, though starting companies at a greater rate than men, were not receiving the resources they needed to scale their startups successfully.
The Get Sh!t Done accelerator aims to address this problem by connecting female entrepreneurs with a curated network of founders and approximately 200 seasoned entrepreneurs, experts, investors, and partners who are committed to helping the accelerator cohort participants scale their companies to $1 million. A major emphasis of the accelerator is learning to understand where founders must focus in order to develop scalable traction and meet growth goals.
After a competitive application process, Spark by Gabby’s founder & CEO Gabby Lubin was accepted into the accelerator’s March 2022 cohort. Driven by her mission to co-create a world where burnout is the exception, not the norm, Gabby appreciates the targeted support provided by the accelerator to help her achieve this scope.
“Not only is Alex Batdorf an incredible leader, but she has created a program that I am truly thrilled to be a part of,” explains Gabby. “Get Sh!t Done is a network of entrepreneurs who truly put collaboration over competition.”
At the conclusion of the seven-week accelerator, Gabby will continue to receive community support and resources as she scales Spark by Gabby to a $1 million company and transformational impact.
