In this Executive Voices segment, we feature our interview with Marie Tillman, founder and CEO of Mac & Mia, a startup that sells clothing for kids from newborn to 6 years of age and which recently raised $3 million in seed funding. Marie founded Mac & Mia out of her garage in 2014 while on maternity leave
from her day job as president of the Pat Tillman Foundation, a non-profit organization named after her late husband that’s awarded more than $14 million in academic scholarships to military veterans and their spouses. In this segment, Marie tells us about why she decided to get into e-commerce, the inspiration behind Mac & Mia, and the parallels she sees in leading a startup venture and a nonprofit foundation. We recorded this segment on site after taking a tour of Mac & Mia’s headquarters in Chicago. Click here to read the related story.
