About us

Alex is Karen’s brother and Andrew is their younger cousin. Karen met Charles 2.5 years ago when they became coworkers at thredUP.

We. LOVE. Hackathons. Why? You get to: 1) build something new, 2) excite an audience, 3) meet great people. In October 2014, we built a prototype of Proximity for the Salesforce $1M Hackathon and won 1st Place, taking home $100k.

Armed with the development and startup experience we’ve gained at top universities and major tech companies, we’re ready and motivated to bring Proximity to the public.
