Tenacity. That's the word I think of when I describe Beth, the founder of Kids Calendar. I met her at a conference in Des Moines, and during the recruiting process for Iowa Startup Accelerator, I drove all the way to Lawrence, KS, specifically to get her into our program. She's exactly the type of entrepreneur I like to bet on: driven, smart, coachable, and working hard to make her idea a national success. Beth's often the first one to arrive, and the last one to leave at night. And that includes Saturday and Sunday. She takes feedback from mentors and applies it immediately, often seeing insightful ways to make those ideas even better. And her idea also resonates with anyone with children: what can I do with my kids today that will be fun, educational and interesting? Today, the answer is to Google around until you find something. But with Kids Calendar, you're prompted with things your kids will like ahead of time! Already live in five cities, Beth and Kids Calendar are a great bet.
Beth McKeon has a clear eye on her target market and continues to seek out knowledge from mentors and advisors about the most effective way to build Kids Calendar into the most effective tool for people to use to find fun in the their area.
Kids Calendar is looking to scale into underserved markets to provide families with the information about what is happening in their hometown. Continuously connecting her with resources that will help her build the best product possible and scales to new markets effectively are key to her success.
