Moms are constantly adapting: from a board meeting to a PTA meeting, lunch-boxes to power lunches. And because of their naturally creative genius and ability to problem solve (master stain removal + soothing a 4-year-old’s existential crisis = a typical 5 minutes), it means they are ideal entrepreneurs. Click through the gallery below to meet the following fearless moms and their cool inventions, like a stylish packable backpack, nostalgic kid’s clothes that are totally modern and the latest amazing thing Ayesha Curry is doing to get kids involved in mealtime.
For Moms on the Go: Kaleido Concepts
“As people who love to travel and are always on-the-go with our kids in tow, we became frustrated with the dull, inflexible carrying options available to us,” said Lisa Hom, co-founder of Kaleido Concepts. So she and Anita Yuen invented something new: an origami-inspired line of transportable products—backpacks and totes—that are as attractive as they are efficient. Hom, previously the CEO of Parasol Co. and the VP of Product Design at Kiwi Co. and Yuen, Product Director at Google, make an impressive team. But more impressive are the little extras: the products are lightweight (most only way a few ounces), durable, can be folded into a pouch and tucked away, have ripstop fabric and YKK Zippers. Plus they work with artists: Ashley Goldberg, Kelly Ventura and Carolyn Suzuki have all come up with unique designs (Pink Breeze, Black Swan and Naval Tidal). Currently in Kickstarter as of Sep. 18, find out more about the stylish designs and crowdfund the one you want! And follow them on Instagram for updates and product info.
