Get Juled’s founder and chief executive officer, Linden Drake, has always had a passion for handcrafting jewelry. From a young age she was adorning friends and family with her creations. After receiving positive and encouraging feedback, she decided to take her hobby to the next level. In the fall of 2012, Linden enrolled in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!).
YEA! is a groundbreaking program that transforms participants into real, confident entrepreneurs. Through the year-long program, the course allows emerging entrepreneurs to generate business ideas, conduct market research, write business plans, pitch to a panel of investors, and launch their very own companies. After Linden successfully completed YEA! in the spring of 2013, she filed her DBA and Get Juled was officially started.
Since then, she has grown and cultivated her business. Showcasing Get Juled at various craft festivals in the Rochester, NY area such as Corn Hill Arts Festival. Her annual show, Christmas on the Farm, in Phelps, NY is where customers can always count on getting their one of a kind gifts for the season.
Linden enjoys letting her creative side shine through Get Juled. In the meantime, she’s working on achieving her Master’s in Business Administration at St. John Fisher College. She also works full-time at an investment banking firm in Rochester, NY. Linden gets her inspiration from traveling to different places and incorporating styles from all over into her jewelry. Each piece is handcrafted by her which she says adds to "Get Juled's unique and exceptional style.”
