Success Story: Prodigi Kids

As they say, necessity is the mother of invention, which perfectly illustrates the origin of Prodigi Kids.

When her daughter, Sophia, was 18 months old, Founder Karen Braveheart placed her daughter’s lunch on a “childproof” placemat that was “guaranteed” by its manufacturer to stay firmly attached to tables.

Up, up, it soared, until spaghetti and meatballs rained down on the unsuspecting gentleman at the next table over. As her daughter laughed (and she cried), Karen decided in that very moment to find a better way. And indeed she has, thanks to help from the SBDC including obtaining the necessary financing.
