Amedee Brennan O’Gorman

Founder, bimbley

What is bimbley’s mission?

To provide free and innovative solutions to help seniors find housing.

My academic background is in electrical engineering and mathematics, but my business background is in senior living. While running my previous company – a senior living referral business – I discovered an even greater gap in the senior living market that was leaving an incredible need for the consumer unfulfilled. So I jumped at the opportunity to address it when I had the chance.

Why did you join MATTER?

The resources provided by MATTER are invaluable to a startup. There is an energized and supportive community, and access to knowledge, education, and meaningful connections.

What are people surprised to learn about you?

I got an early start with entrepreneurship. My first incorporated company was in high school and, by age 19, I purchased my first rental property. The rest is history, as they say.
