Keynote Speaker

Jamie Ratner 

Jamie Ratner is an entrepreneur, Maryland mother of two, and Founder & CEO of CertifiKID, the nation’s largest resource for parents to find and save on kids’ activities and family-friendly experiences. Sprouted from an idea that started at her kitchen table nine years ago, CertifiKID has grown into a national brand focused on helping families spend more quality time together creating incredible memories on a budget.

Jamie recently appeared on the popular ABC television show ‘Shark Tank’ and received a $600,000 investment in her company from Kevin O’Leary, one of the top five biggest investments Mr. O’Leary has made in any company in ten seasons of the show.

Jamie will share her insights and lessons learned on her path to creating a national, multi-million dollar brand. At the same time, she’ll delight and inspire attendees with her anecdotes about taking an idea, adding a twist, and figuring out how to make it work using her $5,000 savings–all while being a wife and mom of two. Jamie will share real-world scenarios that taught her valuable business lessons and, lastly, she’ll challenge attendees to imagine the places their businesses can go and achieve those goals through passion and hard work.
