Our Co-Founder Story
How We Met
"Divinity and I met for the first time in February 2015 in Los Angeles at StartingBloc's Social Innovation Institute, although we later learned we'd both attended USC, have a ton of mutual friends and each spent time working in East and Central Africa. I was impressed with Divinity's pitch of MBA Mama in StartingBloc's Ideas Marketplace competition. Divinity was named one of the winners, and her prize was a team of 15+ fellows rapid prototyping the MBA Mama concept for half a day. I was on Divinity's team. We hit it off immediately. After discovering our shared passion for women's empowerment, we agreed to form a business partnership." - Nicole

Inspiration + Vision
"I was inspired to start MBA Mama in 2015 after seeing few images of - or resources for - women with children in MBA programs I was interested in. The StartingBloc family and Nicole's passion gave me the confidence to launch MBA Mama as a business. As Black and Latina founders, Nicole and I are proud to be the creators and leaders of MBA Mama. We both have overcome many hurdles to reach this point in our careers. We are committed to creating a company that revolutionizes how our society views work and family. We are thankful for the privilege to pursue our dreams of empowering career women who desire to live full, balanced lives."
