Babyation – St. Louis (Where are they now?)
Babyation, the innovative breast pump maker we profiled earlier this year, announced in late March it had surpassed its Kickstarter fundraising goal and plans to ship its product by March 2017.
The wife and husband duo of Samantha Rudolph and Jared Miller said they had raised $81,045 on Kickstarter in just 30 days, easily blowing past their $50,000 goal. Production could begin within six months.
The pump is available for pre-sale from the firm’s website. In an interview, Rudolph said the couple intends to manufacture the pump in the U.S.: “Our goal is to go as close to St. Louis as possible,” she said.
Babyation was founded in Connecticut but the couple moved to St. Louis after winning a $50,000 Arch Grant.
