Founder Story ๐Ÿ“š:

Meet Kimber, founder and CEO of Sequense, task management technology for the modern travel advisor.

โ€Three travel agents walk into a bar...(no, really!) My two cofounders and I [pictured above] owned travel agencies and met at an industry conference in the bar. We commiserated over a glass of wine about our shared problem within the industry. We made a promise that night to fix it. And, Sequense was born!โ€

Kimber is seeking connections to Funders and female founders. If her mission excites you, we encourage you to reach out.

We would love to share YOUR founder's story. Fill in this form to be featured.
