    Chicago, IL

    Mac & Mia is a children’s retail startup in Chicago that will grow by 300% in 2017, and we’d like your help to ensure we achieve and exceed those goals. Our marketing team will be instrumental in this growth – by building a brand that customers love and trust and by developing a diverse and efficient digital acquisition strategy.

    What We Do

    Mac & Mia was founded by Marie Tillman. After the birth of her son, and as a working mom, she was struggling to find beautiful, high-quality kids clothing options without spending a ton of time shopping. Mac & Mia was created as Marie began to discover and curate unique kids styles from boutique brands around the world. Today, Mac & Mia saves busy parents time while delivering a fun and convenient shopping experience for families.

    Mac & Mia customers take a brief style quiz before requesting a box for their child. They are then paired with a stylist who handpicks 6-8 items for the child. The items are shipped and the customer can keep what they love and send back the rest. Mac & Mia currently serves children from ages newborn to 6 years old.
