Who we are + what we do

Part cool club, part think tank, heymama is the premier source of community, inspiration, career intel and support for modern working mothers who hustle to make things happen.

See, we’re not searching for work-life balance; we’re creating it. When the old rules don’t fit our vision, we break ’em and build anew. That’s what heymama is all about—uplifting entrepreneurial mothers as they change and elevate the game.

Heymama’s unique membership circle includes more than 700 CEOs, founders, creatives, artists and other kick-ass leaders in industries from wellness and tech to fashion and finance. If you’re a mama who is passionate about pursuing your dreams and thrives on connecting with like-minded women, we’d love for you to join our crew.

Here on our multimedia editorial hub, we serve up daily doses of insight and inspo, presenting exclusive interviews with women entrepreneurs, along with candid startup advice, no-holds-barred motherhood wisdom, the 411 on lifestyle trends, and so much more—all drawn directly from our powerful mama tribe.

Oh, and have you heard? We produce events, too. Our women’s business conferences, networking mixers and community meet-ups are attended by thousands of powerhouse moms in major cities across the country.

Indeed, Heymama has achieved some pretty amazing things since its founding in 2015. Like our incredible community, we’re just getting started.

Katya Libin

Katya Libin

Katya’s career began in 2007 with a niche in sales for tech startups in the media measurement space. After six very successful years at Critical Mention, she became number one in the sales division, bringing in approximately half the company’s revenue and closing three of its largest deals. Later, Katya went on to become the Global Director of Sponsorship Sales at Social Media Week where she not only built custom partnership programs but also programmed 5,000-person events. Katya's passion, however, has always been in connecting and learning about people and in supporting mothers with a mission. In 2014, she launched Heymama with best friend, Amri Kibbler. As Co-Founder & CEO, Katya is building the community from the ground up at heymama, focusing on vetting and developing meaningful partnerships with brands and members to find each other in a very cluttered space. She hopes this leads to connection and inspiration for mothers everywhere. When she’s not working, she’s rock climbing with her daughter, Liliana, or binge-watching Game of Thrones.
