What is CheckTheQ?
CheckTheQ tracks and communicates wait times and movement activity data in real-time, empowering venues like airports, stadiums, and retail centers to improve their revenue and transform their customers' experiences.
I co-founded CheckTheQ in 2017 after years of wondering how long I would be waiting in line at airport security. Originally from Boston, I moved to the midwest for Washington University in St. Louis and stuck around to help found and grow this company. When I’m not working on CheckTheQ, you can find me moderating a House of Genius session, coaching public speaking and communications, or guest-lecturing in Olin Business School.

Prior to co-founding CheckTheQ, Sanela worked at Maritz where she lead a front-end development team focused on SaaS products. Sanela holds a BS in computer science from Webster University.
