Mamava delivers design solutions for nursing mothers on the go, making the world a friendlier place for women to pump or breast feed. The initial product is a lactation suite “pod”; a free-standing 32 square foot uniquely shaped room with a locking door for privacy often located in public buildings such as airports, malls, zoos, office buildings, convention centers and even Fenway Park. The company was co-founded by “intrapraneurs” Sascha Mayer and Christine Dodson while working at Solidarity Design in Burlington VT. The company is currently headquartered at the Karma Birdhouse in Burlington, VT. The company raised a Series Seed round led by FreshTracks Capital in July 2015.Visit Mamava
