Meet Amri and Katya
The founders of HeyMama
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HOW HEYMAMA WAS BORN:
It all started out innocently enough, on a play-date, at McCarren Park in Brooklyn. We were two women, caught at an intersection of our lives after having our kids and yet feeling restless (even amongst little rest). We had lots of wild big picture ideas, friends who believed in us, and a tiny voice pushing us to just try. We quickly discovered we were not alone in our desire to take over the world. Every day, we spoke with mothers that had a calling to create something, make it theirs, put a stamp on it and give it all they had.
A bit about us, we met when our little girls Mari Rose and Liliana Rae were 3 months old. We ran in different social circles and in a city where you’re always six degrees apart, we had not a single soul we knew in common. Our kids and a little timing and luck brought us together. We were both feeling out of sorts in our post baby worlds, curious as to how everyone else seemed to have kids at just the same time their friends did. We were thirsty for adult attention, and wine. Where were all the cool mamas?
Both having worked for other companies, starting our own project was the scariest and most exhilarating opportunity. What spoke to us most from the get-go was connecting women, because let’s face it, we’re pretty amazing. It was after we began to have endless and highly enjoyable coffee, wine and play-dates with mamas we knew and were introduced to (all in the name of research!), we realized there was a common thread. The women we encountered who were ambitious, yet family focused, creative and business savvy, humble yet worthy of much praise, blew us away. We began introducing our friends and inviting them to get involved, heymama was born.
HEYMAMA is a content plate form and a curated membership community for creative, talented and entrepreneurial mamas from around the world. Their mission is to inspire, bridge and provide resources for the members so that they may achieve the impossible balance of home and work while they build their dreams of both.
