Article Published: September 10, 2014

4moms, the robotics company that makes high-tech baby gear, today announced a second round of institutional funding led by Castanea Partners with participation from existing investor Bain Capital Ventures. 4moms will use the funding to accelerate company growth with an emphasis on new product development. As part of the investment, Robert Smith, Managing Partner at Castanea, will join the 4moms board of directors.

“4moms is a world leader at developing consumer robots that solve real problems for families,” said Robert Daley, CEO of 4moms. “This investment allows us to continue our focus on new product development.”

“4moms represents a great opportunity given our investment and operating experience in branded consumer products,” said Robert Smith. “The company is a category leader with an innovative and differentiated approach in the baby products and gear space which is enthusiastically embraced by retailers and customers alike. We really look forward to working closely with the 4moms team and our partners at Bain Capital Ventures to support the company’s continuing growth.”

Scott Friend, Managing Director of Bain Capital Ventures added, “We are thrilled to continue supporting 4moms into its next chapter of growth. 4moms has completely revolutionized the category of consumer products, and it is a reflection of the quality of this business and management team to have attracted a world-class consumer-focused private equity investment firm like Castanea to the team. We couldn’t be more excited for what is ahead for 4moms.”

4moms has redefined the $8.9 billion juvenile products industry through its use of advanced robotics technology. The result is dramatically better baby gear, including the 4moms origami®, the world’s only power-folding stroller; the 4moms mamaRoo® infant seat that replicates the bouncing and swaying motions parents make when soothing their babies; and the 4moms breeze® playard that opens or closes in one simple step.

4moms products are sold in more than 2,000 retail locations in the United States, with distribution in 52 countries. The company continues to experience dramatic growth. It was recently ranked No. 591 on the Inc. 5000 with $30 million of revenue in 2013.
