Hear from these amazing moms and more: 

Amanda Little- Abby & Finn, Co-founder (she/her) 

Amanda is a Colorado native, a mother of two girls and is a co-founder of a diaper subscription company called ABBY&FINN. ABBY&FINN started when she and her husband realized they were spending over $180 a month to diaper their two girls, which they thought was nuts! They wanted to use high quality products that were free of harmful chemicals and gentle on their kids’ sensitive skin, but didn’t think it needed to be so expensive. They also found that their girls regularly didn’t finish a diaper size when they bought in bulk, so they were left with a bunch of diapers that were too small and they couldn’t use. They wanted an affordable subscription that actually grew with their kids and offered the flexibility to mix sizes in the same box. After diving into the world of diapers, they realized that 1 in 3 families in America struggle to simply afford diapers. To help address the diaper need, they built a give back into the business and included their commitment in the name; FINN stands for Families IN Need.

MODERATOR:  Dana Spaulding- Wander + Ivy  (she/her)

Dana Spaulding came home after a long day of work to open a bottle of wine, but was asked by her husband if she was going to “waste another bottle” seeing as she would only be drinking a glass. She started to search for single-serve wines so she could eliminate the guilt of wasting, but to her dismay anything she found was low-quality wine in cheap packaging - not to mention zero organic options. 

Dana decided to create her own and founded, Wander + Ivy (W+I) in 2017. Since launching, Wander + Ivy has become a high-caliber brand and unique organic option in the single-serve wine space because they’re clean, expressive and appropriately made for one. Based in Colorado, W+I partner with family-owned vineyards around the world to bring you premium wine that is made with certified organic grapes and packaged in sleek and convenient 6.3-ounce glass bottles. The W+I wines are sold in over 100 retailers, restaurants and hotels across Colorado as well as select retailers in San Francisco and New York City. They will soon be launching their wines for national distribution to be in store and online are currently in the works.
