About Kaitlyn

Seeking a co-founder for my passion project, a side business called MendIt, Inc., www.mendit.app.

I'm convinced I need a co-founder to take this and run with it, because I already have a full-time business and young children. I'm fine if I'm not the face of MendIt--if you want to be on the cover of FastCompany, this could be your path.

Currently MendIt, Inc. is incorporated in Delaware and I've done the vision, concept, branding, and website. I have a great app prototype design firm ready to build prototypes but I was hoping to find a co-founder with more experience in this space so we could narrow down the business model and write a complete business plan before prototyping.

I realize it's a bit backwards in terms of order, but I wanted to act on the pieces I'm good at (vision, message, brand) and find someone to help fill in the blanks after. Not only because there is so much buzz about circularity, fast fashion, and conscious consumerism and I want MendIt to be positioned to capitalize on that, but also because describing your idea is far less concrete than showing a branded website.

If the concept grabs you and you can see the potential of MendIt the way I can, please contact me.
