Sophie Baron is the Founder of UK based parent/baby digital start-up Mamamade; a fast growing direct-to-consumer business delivering everything parents need to make delicious, plant-based meals for their babies, quickly. With the use of AI Mamamade creates bespoke nutrient-dense meals for children aged 6-36 months. Originally from New York, Sophie ventured to the UK to undertake a PhD before becoming Head of Operations at a fast-track tech company. In 2017, she gave birth to her first daughter and after six months, began to juggle the return to work with caring for her baby. By 2019 Mamamade had progressed beyond being a ‘side-hustle’ and is now the fastest-growing baby food subscription company in the UK.

Sophie shares advice on how she has navigated being a woman in business, particularly how embracing her ‘inner girl’ has turned into a real advantage as she’s scaled Mamamade. Though we are raised to believe that girls are less powerful, there is an innate compassion, empathy, passion, vulnerability and openness that can be harnessed and embraced for great success.
