Yumi CEO & co-founder Food Los Angeles, CA
About Angela
I was a private equity executive when I became pregnant with my first child. Like most first-time parents, I read up on parenting and child development and realized the importance of early childhood nutrition. After my daughter was born, I was shocked to realize that the commercially available baby foods were high in fruit sugar, low in nutrition and older than my baby. My options were either to A) spend my precious non-working hours preparing every meal myself, or B) purchase sub-par products at the grocery store. I rejected both of those options and created option C. I quit my job and co-founded Yumi with my friend and former WSJ reporter Evelyn Rusli. Yumi is a comprehensive science-based early childhood meal delivery program that provides chef-curated, nutritionally dense baby meals made with fresh, organic ingredients and high-quality superfoods. We strive to provide parents with all the necessary resources to maximize the nutrition and health of their young children.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

As a private equity executive, I learned to quickly assess businesses and make meaningful improvements. I’m happy to provide guidance to other entrepreneurs striving to turn their passions into successful businesses.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Growing our business, as we expand to new markets and onboard more employees--while still sleeping and making time for my family ;)

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I’m excited to network with other incredible women and moms who are raising awareness around important issues in their respective industries and working to make a positive impact on the world.
