PROVIDENCE, R.I.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Premama®,
the first nationwide line of natural powdered drink mixes specifically
formulated to support the nutritional needs of expecting and new moms,
today announced it has completed a $1 million Series A round of
financing, closing with an additional $400 thousand to raise $1.4

specialists Cherrystone Angel Group. Funding will continue to support
the brand’s significant expansion, which includes product development,
as well as various marketing and retailer programs.


“This funding is instrumental in accelerating Premama’s growth, which
involves a sizeable expansion of product offerings and exciting retail
launches,” said Dan Aziz, Premama Founder and President. “As a pioneer
in women’s maternity wellness, we will put this funding to work and
continue to increase our infrastructure, develop new product innovations

aggressive marketing effort led by newly appointed Jamie Schapiro, Chief
Marketing Officer of Premama. An expert in the food and beverage
industry, Schapiro has more than two decades of experience driving the
development, launch and growth of highly differentiated consumer goods
and services such as Jamba Juice, GO Veggie!, Clif Bar, Stirrings and
MyPoints.
