Project Description

MOMentum is an online marketplace of goods and services powered by moms!  Our marketplace and future app allow businesses to list jobs and hire moms, as well as gives moms a platform to sell and buy goods and services.  We are an Etsy, Fivver and UpWork merged into one. MOMentum Market is a ONE STOP SHOP! You can book a graphic designer and grab a birthday gift in one swoop.

 

We are a team of moms and dad ally's that are on a mission to GET MOMS PAID so they can lead a FLEXIBLE LIFE! Our team and advisors have backgrounds from Postmates, Twitter, Fred Hutch, Harvard Management Company, Etsy, Microsoft and more.

 

Our Founder, Brooke, Co-Founded a Co-Working space for moms and saw that moms were buying and selling one another's goods and services and helping each other make more money in the micro-economy they had created.  She saw the potential to scale that economy globally and that is where MOMentum Market was born!

More about the Market:

  • It does not cost to list on our market, we have ZERO listing fees.
  • Only Moms can list goods and services but ANYONE can buy or list jobs to hire moms!
  • We hold the money in escrow until the good has been delivered or the service has been completed to protect all parties.
  • Currently, we are just available in the United States but will be opening up to other areas in the future.

 

MOMentum has progressed and gained traction since our founding in September 2018. We created our MVP, ran a closed beta and then with feedback from our moms we bootstrapped to a fully working product. We just launched to the public and daily we have new users signing up for MOMentum! Our vision is to get more moms paid so they can lead a flexible life. With that, we need more funding to help us to scale and bring more buyers, sellers, and partnerships onto the marketplace. We also want to hire additional talent so that we can improve our current platform and create a mobile app for Android/iOS.

If we reach our goal we will head right into App Development in January with an App Development Team and get an app to market as soon as possible to help increase buyers on the platform and make a better user experience for our moms!

 

 

We decided to crowdfund on this awesome MOM FOUNDED platform, iFundWomen because we believe in putting our money where our mouth is!  MOMentum Market has come a long way with no outside funding and we want to take it further but we need YOUR SUPPORT! We believe we can raise $50K and not only be MOM BUILT & MOM POWERED, but also MOM FUNDED!  Your contribution not only helps to grow our platform but with that growth, you are helping moms all over the country GET PAID so they can lead a more FLEXIBLE LIFE! Catch the wave of MOMentum and help support our movement of Moms!
