Startup Toledo: Claire Coder
Claire Coder began her marketing company, There's a Badge for That, at age 16. In just one year she has grown the company to sell internationally with four independent distributors working by her side. Originally designing only buttons, the company now has over 400 original designs — and presses buttons, magnets, compact mirrors, and bottle openers.
As a senior at Southview High School, Coder is passionate about her extracurricular activities, grades, and helping others. As a World Champion Prosecution Attorney for her Mock Trial Team, Youth Intern at Epworth Church, and Certified Zumba Instructor, Coder is a busy young woman, yet always takes time to sip her favorite teas.
She will be majoring in marketing at the Ohio State University.
