Networking Platform for Mothers
Hi I’m Ekta, the founder of MeetMUMZ.
I moved from India to Hong Kong after getting married. After my first child was born in 2016, I felt, even though I had a good support system, lonely and overwhelmed. Having grown up in a large extended family with multiple pairs of hands feeding, nurturing, and loving me in a secure environment, I missed having such a large community supporting me. As I realized that many other expatriate families were facing similar problems, I decided to start a Facebook community for mothers to connect with one another. The group grew quickly and within two months, there were already 100 members. As my interest in having a mother support community continued to grow, along with crowdfunding and my expertise in computer engineering and finance, I envisioned the meetmumz application to be a platform that embraces, empowers, and focuses on the narrative to find their own happy place.
