Kisha Richardson


San Francisco

Kisha is an inner-city kid turned investment banker, turned entrepreneur & engineer. She quit her cushy corporate job and moved across the country from New York City to the San Francisco Bay Area to fully devote time to sharpening her coding skills and "becoming her own technical co-founder".

Last summer, she launched Seed It Project to provide a way for boot-strappers to earn seed money to fund the "zero-to-traction" phase of projects without giving up equity or incurring debt. Kisha built Seed It from the ground up as a way to learn to code. She wrote the application in Ruby & JavaScript using the Rails framework.

After Seed It, Kisha was invited to attend and is a proud Fall’12 cohort of Hacker School [batch 4]. She's currently working on her first post-Hacker School project cleanME inc.

cleanMe offers radically personal residential cleaning services through an innovative Lean Sigma driven logistics management platform. cleanMe successfully launched its MVP in select neighborhoods of SF & NYC.
