A Conversation with: Courtney Klein of Storq

Meet Courtney Klein, the San Francisco-based entrepreneur and founder of maternity label Storq!

We chatted with Jak Burke, founder of the website Baby Does... NYC, on her favorite baby-friendly restaurants, hidden NYC gems, and how to survive long winters with baby: 1. Tell us about Baby Does...NYC and why you decided to start the site. I’m a London born and bred girl but when I visited New York in 2001 I was instantly hooked. Within 12 months I had sold everything in the U.K and shipped out to NYC. I quickly began to work with families and small children in the city... I soon realized that there was an info gap for the 0-24 months age group. I also wanted to host a site that offered healthy, locally made goods and services for busy parents. In 2007 I registered my company and trademark Baby Does NY...READ MORE
