Jessica Nam Kim is founder and CEO of BabbaCo, a parenting lifestyle brand centered on integrated solutions that are “simple. functional. super cute.” BabbaCo, which started in 2008, now focuses on their newest line, the BabbaBox. It’s a monthly box delivery that addresses the ongoing challenge of: “What do I do with my kids?” Every BabbaBox is theme-based and includes all the physical materials and know-how content to really engage with kids based on their development stage.  Kim started her entrepreneurial path with Jessica’s Wonders (1998-2003), an upbeat brand of premium baked goods.  She started the company out of her dorm room at age 19, raised $1M funding with braces, grew it to 3 outsource manufacturers and national distribution.
