Who We Are
Collectively we’ve covered a lot of ground when it comes to business. Our backgrounds span business development, management, operations, marketing, and creative. We’ve had the privilege of working from the ground up either managing or directing in a ton of different industries. Everything from fashion, retail, creative, and health/ wellness. So why the resume recap? Long story short we’ve seen and dealt with A LOT.
What you should know is that our strength lies in our ability to see how problems are created, and how they can be solved from a holistic perspective. That means more effective and longer lasting solutions. Above all else our passion lies with people. People are the most important part of your business. We know what it feels like to work in a negative culture, and have reaped it’s oh so pretty benefits of burnout, unfulfillment, and unhappiness. That’s why we built Bakit. To help things work better, grow better, and to ensure everyone is appreciated while doing so.
We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work on is the unceded territory of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.
Bakit, short for Back It Up. Kidding. Bakit translates from Tagalog to WHY. Why, “Why”? Because why not.
Why is defined as: for what cause, reason or purpose.
That definition is something that we believe you should consistently ask yourself. What is the purpose behind what you are building? What are the reasons for your actions, and your intentions for the future? Bet you didn’t think so much meaning could come from such a simple word.
Collectively we have gone through the ups and downs of both corporate life and entrepreneurship. Now we can confidently say we know what’s essential and what isn’t
A strong foundation, and healthy working environment require clarity and the right tools. Both of which our experience has given us. Our mission is to pass those tools along. We want to help other entrepreneurs find the same confidence so that they may build a better more sustainable business.
