Skidmore Grad Starts Website to Fund StartUps for Moms


Catherine Merritt, Skidmore Alum founded a unique startUp for Moms – MUMZY.  MUMZY is a crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platform for and by moms. Understanding the unique barriers, ideas and mindsets of moms, MUMZY is built to best serve this robust and innovative community. MUMZY will help moms launch ideas, build businesses, raise money for fellow moms and make life a little easier and better for one another.
Over 10 billion dollars was raised through crowdfunding in 2014 and analysts predict that number could almost double, reaching $17-$20 billion transacted in 2015 . By 2025 it is expected to surpass $90 billion.  There are more than 82.5 million mothers in the US; approximately 4 million women pregnant each year. A huge market that isn’t represented in the crowdfunding industry, until now.
