Lindsay Pinchuk – Bump Club and Beyond

If you are expecting or have a new baby, Lindsay might be a very familiar face. She launched Bump Club & Beyond, a social and educational group for new parents, when pregnant with her first daughter. Now, it's a nationwide phenomenon and the reason so many connections are made and friendships begin in the new-parenting world. In 2015, Bump Club will host events in 19 cities in the United States and Canada. How does she do it? "We are wired as women to want to do it all, but we can’t…there is no way. The first thing is recognizing that, the second is asking for help," says Lindsay. "I could not be the mom I am, or the business owner I am without my amazing village. My husband, our childcare, my mom, our friends. They help me make it happen every day." Of course she saves time for fun with her girls, Jordyn, 4, and Lila, 1. That includes dance parties nearly every day and exploring all of Chicago's family treasures. Chances are, this year you'll bump into Lindsay, named Entrepreneur of the Year in 2014 by Crain’s Chicago Business. Bump Club is working with Nordstrom to host events in five cities. And its signature event, Gearapalooza: The Ultimate Baby Gear and Registry Event with The BabyGuyNYC, will be held in 15 cities in the United States and Canada this year.
