Project Description

Bumo is the first co-working space with fully licensed childcare for modern parents. Eighty-two percent (82%) of all children that are being born today are being born to millennial parents and this number will continue to increase. Millennials want to have it all -- whether it’s raising a healthy family or pursuing the career of their dreams. Bumo will enable parents to have the best of both worlds. 

 

HOW THE IDEA STARTED

 

When Chriselle Lim had the brainchild for a co-working space with licensed childcare, one of the BUMO Advisors connected Chriselle with Joan Nguyen, whom Chriselle had met over a decade earlier during a business event. Since re-connecting to develop BUMO, Chriselle brought Joan in as the CEO of Bumo. Both Chriselle and Joan have been juggling their mom hats and start-up hats, flying to the Silicon Valley and East Coast for investor meetings and shifting gears “after the kids go down” to lean into Bumo. Their shared sense of work ethic and belief in what Bumo represents has engendered a truly remarkable partnership.

Chriselle’s identity that was primarily focused solely on beauty and fashion started to shift given her life changes, becoming a mother of two young girls, Chloe and Colette. Chriselle’s digital reach, especially among millennial parents, coupled with Joan’s experience in education and operations deemed them the ideal partners to grow a brand.

 

MEET CHRISELLE,  CMO & CO-FOUNDER

As she became a mother of two, Chriselle had a realization as a working mom -- that there was a global issue with no viable solution to be able to raise a family and pursue a career at the same time. BUMO initially started as what would be a solution for her busy life, but quickly grew into a global digital community as she started opening up real discussions with other parents who also understand that transitioning into parenthood as a working parent is hard. Although Chriselle is still a key figure in the fashion and beauty realm, she has created a space for all parents around the world to support one another through parenthood and working at the same time.

 

MEET JOAN, CEO & CO-FOUNDER

Joan Nguyen is the founder of the INC 5000 education company, MeriEducation, which specializes in academic learning, test preparation, and college admissions. Nguyen, the first in her family to attend college, started the company at 20 years old with $3000 in personal savings and scaled it to a company with a team of almost 50 with students from all over the world ranging from South America to Asia. Joan is a mother of two young children, Reagan (4 years) and Elliott (3 years). What’s more, Ms. Nguyen is an education expert. A doctoral candidate at USC’s Rossier School of Education (but deferring to commit full time to BUMO), Ms. Nguyen is a published author of an SAT Mathematics textbook. Having written thousands of pages in test preparation curriculum, she has developed a training academy on proprietary methodology. Her combination of expertise has earned MeriEducation, a still boot-strapped venture after a decade, the honor of being an INC5000 company in 2017, recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in America.

Invited to the United Nations to be honored as the Entrepreneur of the Year by the Empact Showcase and a Bronze Medalist for the International Stevie Awards for the Young Female Entrepreneur of the Year category, Ms. Nguyen’s enthusiasm for business deems her a strong component of Bumo’s operations team as the CEO.

It is about teaching life skills that will help them thrive as older children and even as adults.
