CogniKids, creator of intelligent baby products including a sensory bib for teething babies and a baby bottle grip to promote self feeding, has recently started distributing in the United States – thanks to a deal with Buy Buy Baby, a chain of 135+ stores across America.
The innovative baby products are also taking off in Europe. CogniKids has secured a deal that will see the range distributed in Spain, Slovenia and Hungary – building on a strong market presence in Ireland and the UK.
With a solid career in teaching, entrepreneurship was perhaps a surprising choice for CogniKids founder, Ollwyn Moran. ‘Life is short and I want to soak up as many different experiences as I can. When things are stable, I find myself itching for the next challenge. I could have stayed in a teaching job that I loved, but why not just go for it?’ explains Ollwyn.
In 2013 CogniKids was awarded prize money from The Ireland Funds Business Plan Competition prompting Ollwyn to apply herself full time to her business venture.
