Being a parent is expensive. Kids grow fast. Constantly having to buy new clothes that are outgrown in the blink of an eye is a big burden for most parents. As a mother, Beata Adamczyk had firsthand experience with this and had an idea about how to address the problem. Having previously been bitten by the startup bug, she was motivated to create a startup around the idea. She met her cofounder Patrick Guderski through the Polish-American community in Northern California. As a developer, Patrick, who had also developed an interest in startups, was looking to work on an idea that helps people out and got onboard with Beata’s idea right away and the two launched Beekwee – Donation Marketplace For Parents. I sat down with Patrick and Beata after 1 Million Cups at Impact Venture Capital to hear more about the origins of their startup and some of the lessons they’ve learned along the way. Check it out in the video or audio podcast below.
