Delomore started with Craig shopping for a weighted blanket to give his wife. It was tough to find a nice one. Countless independent online stores sell cool things, but many of these stores aren’t on Amazon, and they don’t come up on Google.
A New York Time article on the Shopify ecosystem sparked an idea. The world needs a marketplace to match up shoppers and independent store owners. Delomore is going to provide that.
Craig and Jenny previously knew each other through a mutual friend. By early 2022, Craig and Jenny decided to join forces to bring Delomore to launch.
Craig is the technical expertise behind Delomore. Prior to Delomore, Craig was a Principal Machine Learning Engineer at TripAdvisor. Before Tripadvisor, he worked at several Boston area startups. He has a Bachelor’s in Engineering from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!), and a Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon.
Jenny brings the business acumen to Delomore. Before Delomore, Jenny worked in economic consulting in Boston, followed by competitive intelligence and product management roles at Wayfair. She holds an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Business and received her Bachelor’s in Economics and Mathematics from Amherst College.
