Founded in 2005 by Rob Daley and Henry Thorne, 4moms is a Pittsburgh-based company that makes innovative baby products, including the origami, the world’s first power-folding stroller that folds and unfolds at the touch of a button. Convinced that increasingly affordable electronics can add value in static product categories, Daley and Thorne decided to start 4moms after meeting for lunch one day. Formed with the help of a focus group of four moms, the company seeks to “develop dramatically better juvenile products” that are elegant and useful to parents everywhere.
Through its 4moms Cares program, the company offers product discounts, donations, and educational programs to hospitals, non-profits, students, and families in need. There are currently over 50 hospitals in the US that use the mamaRoo infant seat in their maternity wards and NICUs. Non-profit organizations that 4moms has supported include Fostering Hope, Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, and Miracle Babies Foundation.
