HeyMama, a NYC-based social and professional network of working mothers, raised $2m in seed funding.
Backers included Rebecca Minkoff, Kori Estrada, Kathryn Moos, Janna Meyrowitz Tuner, Divya Gugnani, Alison Wyatt, Sari Azout, Kymberly Marciano, Karen Cahn, and Keith Billing.
The company intends to use the funds to advance the technology platform available to members, increase their membership capacity, add strategic senior leadership, and drive expansion to new cities.
Co-founded by Katya Libin and Amri Kibbler, HeyMama is a network of working moms providing community, advice and mentorship. Through access to a member database, group messaging, events, and original inspiring content, members are able to find resources and people they need. Plus, members receive perks like discounts to brands that match their lifestyle.
In 2019, the company grew its network to 2100 members with 11 official chapters, held 171 events, and connected 4,751 women.
