Who Founded Bee Thinking (Bee Built)?

Matt Reed and Jill Reed were the co-founders of Bee Thinking. Before founding the company, The Reeds were already established professionals. Matt was an IT professional, while his wife Jill was working in the wine industry. After Bee Thinking was acquired by Bee Built in 2017, little is known about what the Reeds are currently doing.

Founder’s Story

Matt Reed got the motivation to start Bee Thinking after doing an act of kindness. He saw a hungry bee and fed it honey, the next day; more bees appeared on his window. He saw this as an opportunity to become a beekeeper.

As mentioned earlier, Matt quit his job and entirely concentrated his efforts on beekeeping. As a newfound bee enthusiast, keeping bees was a symbiotic engagement. Through his passion, he started a business while ensuring there is an ecological balance by keeping bees.

Matt’s passion for building beehives was well-received, as people all over the country were asking for his beehives. The demand for Bee Thinking beehives soon escalated as they soon started getting orders from other countries. The acquisition of the company by Bee Built is further proof of the utility of the Bee Thinking brand.
