Persnickety Founder Chari Pack on Forbes Next 1000 List

Forbes has launched a new initiative that puts small businesses at the center. This list of achievers defy the odds, bootstrapping and scaling businesses built for Main Street, not Wall Street.

Focused on the pre-revenue (built from scratch) startups who define what it means to build and run a business today, Forbes is calling this year-long mission The NEXT 1000, nominating 250 businesses each quarter to create the 2021 class.

The list of judges includes Linkedin co-founder, Reid Hoffman, Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg, Alex Rodriguez, Russell Wilson and Ciara.
