MEET OUR SPEAKER
In celebration of #SGWomen Month, we have lined up an amazing entrepreneur for our next virtual Fireside Chat! Christine Deehring is the founder and CEO of Bump Boxes, the world’s #1 pregnancy subscription service providing curated healthy products for expecting mothers along every stage of pregnancy and beyond.
Inspired by her own challenges during pregnancy, Christine and her husband co-founded the company in 2014, shortly after the birth of their first child, while still working full-time and caring of her newborn. In just five years of time, Bump Boxes has grown to $20 million USD in annual recurring revenue and empowered 14 million moms monthly across the world. It has also expanded to aid Fortune 500 companies in the creation of their maternity and paternity wellness programs, as well as their onboarding plans, changing the pregnancy experience at work. Now, Bump Boxes serves over 300+ corporate clients and is widely recognized as the industry leader in pregnancy subscription marketing.
Earlier this year, to further her mission and purpose behind the brand, Christine launched the Bump Fund to invest up to $1 million USD in early-stage startups that sell to moms or moms-to-be, or simply companies that are founded by mom-preneurs. A true testament to entrepreneurship, Christine was a 2018 E&Y Entrepreneurial Winning Women Finalist, nominated 40 Under 40, and was voted No. 1 Startup Company in Peoria Magazine. She has been featured numerous times in major publications including Forbes, InStyle Magazine, JournalStar, Fox News, RedBook, TheBump, What to Expect, Werk, Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine, and so many more. This is a fireside chat you don't want to miss. Join us on June 3rd and prepare to be galvanized as Christine shares her inspiring success stories and entrepreneurial journey with valuable lessons learned along the way.
