Many first dates end up going nowhere. But for Jordan and Emily Edelson, dinner and drinks led not only to a marriage — but also a successful business partnership.
Last year, the pair co-founded an app called Chic Sketch, a cross between an Instagram-type platform, a guild of fashion illustrators and an on-demand purchasing app where customers can buy and share fashion sketches of themselves.
"I think we saw a lot of potential in each other for a number of different purposes, whether it be for a relationship or work. It was hard to get out of the work or friend zone," Jordan said. "We were able to merge forces and build this team together."
