We are obsessed with “tech-enabled parenthood” and partnering with entrepreneurs who want to make parenting easier.
Only half of millennials have had children. This means there will soon be a wave of new parents expecting better solutions to age-old parenting problems. We exist to help entrepreneurs solve these problems.
Our team has deep experience across operations, investing, consulting, and M&A. We love to take an active role and help our companies grow however possible.
Our companies also have access to Kids II assets – its relationships, expertise, resources, and reach – to help accelerate their growth agenda and de-risk the business.
good buy gear
Good Buy Gear helps solve two big problems for families: 1) it helps families unload gently used (or previously loved!) baby and child gear for money, and 2) it helps families wanting to purchase name brand, gently used products at discounted prices, saving on the family budget and the environment. Good Buy Gear’s “white glove” service blends the best of a neighborhood consignment store (home pickup) with the scale and ease of use of eCommerce. The secret sauce to their model lies in the “Wingmoms,” who are the soul of the business, brand ambassadors, and responsible for everything from warehouse management to product quality testing.

Kinedu helps parents and caregivers answer two of the biggest questions parents face: 1) is my child developing "on track," and 2) what are things I can do to encourage development?

This is done by creating personalized daily lesson plans developed specifically for that baby through an at-home assessment.
