About MARTINA

I was born and raised in Slovakia. When I turned 18, I went to France to study Economics and lived there for more than 20 years until I moved to NYC. During all these years, I’ve never stopped to perpetuate my cultural heritage. 9 years ago, when our daughter was born, I realized my duty to impart her Slovak roots (language, traditions, food, ….), and because I was the parent spending more time at home with her, also culture from Mauritius, because of my spouse’s origin. I was looking for recipes I didn’t always know and for ingredients that were not easy to find in France. Once we moved to New York, the idea of creating KITnDO was obvious. If I was looking for items related to our cultural background (Slovak, French and Mauritian), I was sure that others were as well. Launched in 2017, KITnDO is a social-driven platform built by and for people to enable them to keep in touch with their country of origin, or discover and perpetuate the culture of their ancestors.
I am looking for a technical co-founder, not a developer - I have an external team but I need a person who will take the best decisions for this project.
