This week on Top of Mind, we travel to Hamilton, Mo. for the second half of our two-part series to see how one of Missouri Star Quilt Company's co-founders used his tech background to put this startup ahead of its competition. Pairing up with his mother and several siblings, Alan Doan took his mom's passion for quilting and turned it into a business that's now employing a growing chunk of their hometown. With his entrepreneurial experience in Techstars and beyond, Alan has helped take a classic craft and given it new life in the digital world.
