Little Spoon, a NYC-based direct-to-consumer baby food and early childhood nutrition company, raised $7M in venture capital funding.
Backers included Vaultier7, Kairos, Kyle O’Brien, Tinder founders Sean Rad and Justin Mateen, Interplay Ventures, SoGal Ventures, and the fund affiliated with the owners of the San Francisco 49ers, among others.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to build its brand and scale its offering with additional products.
Founded by a team of moms and seasoned food and consumer product executives, Lisa Barnett, Michelle Muller, Ben Lewis, and Angela Vranich, Little Spoon designs fresh, healthy organic baby food without the use of preservatives, extreme heat, or trips to the grocery store.
The company, whose first product is Babyblends, designed a proprietary, 100% recyclable container complete with a spoon.
