Amazing things Karen's made
I built Natural Interactions, an interactive touchscreen kiosk system placed in natural products stores (and the precursor to Makeena) in the mid-1990s. At about the same time, I also built InterActive Properties, an interactive touchscreen kiosk system that provided information about real estate listings and rentals. We (my co-founder and I) pitched InterActive Properties to Nortel, and Nortel agreed to Phase I and Phase 2 of our project. Then, Natural Interactions took off and we ended up focusing on Natural Interactions because we were able to get to market a lot quicker with that project. Building Natural Interactions was a very exciting time for my co-founder and me.

Liz Coker recommended makeena where Karen is Co-Founder

makeena, and it's founder, Karen Frame have a unique and long-overdue solution to help healthy and sustainable brands, shoppers and retailers better connect with each other. makeena puts the "people" back into the "consumer" and "brand".

The data-driven makeena platform simplifies access to business insights and consumer information, making it much easier and more affordable to make good choices when it comes to brand marketing, our personal lives, and the environment.

I am excited to see makeena's vision and persistence positively affect the entire value chain - not just one set of stakeholders. I feel privileged to be part of the effort to drive this much needed change in how we do business and engage with people - not just brands, retailers and consumers. makeena makes it easy, convenient and personal - everything needed to do good by shareholders, while still doing good for consumers and the planet.
