Q: How did you get started on Bambox?

In Bambox co-founding team, we are 3 french engineers, Timothée Jauffret (COO), Rémi Beaufils (CTO) and myself.

We all left our day jobs and we bootstrapped Bambox from our living room in our shared flat. Until today, we couldn't be more thankful to our roommates for letting us pile stacks of diapers in the house for at least a year!

We all came to Argentina for different reasons. One came to study and is getting married now, another settled down here after traveling around the world. For me, after graduating from an engineering Msc in Brazil I wanted to stay in LatAm to enjoy the lifestyle and I ended up working with Timothée at a third-party logistics provider.

That's where it all started. We had a clear vision on how should logistics could help in everyday life and we wanted to do it our own way. At the same time, all our friends started to disappear every Saturday to hunt down discounted diapers, and that was where we started to see an opportunity to make the lives of thousands better. As millennials today, we want more time for leisure.

From our background in designing logistic network plus the technological expertise from Rémi who joined the project, we designed and validated a first MVP. We all left our day jobs and we bootstrapped Bambox from our living room in our shared flat. Until today, we couldn't be more thankful to our roommates for letting us pile stacks of diapers in the house for at least a year!

B2C can be hard, but it was so rewarding to see the user base grow and the positive comments we received about the very own service we designed. We knew we had a direct impact on parents everyday life.
