Lindsey Johnson, co-founder of Johnson Workwear said:

Last Spring I pitched Johnson Workwear and I won. It allowed me buy everything we needed to do an entire production run. It also made me believe in myself and my mission. Up until that point I felt like I was just a farm girl trying to make clothes for people, but now I feel that I am a designer and I am a founder of a company and I am confident in the product that we’re building for women.
