EnterpriseCorp, the division of Greater Louisville Inc. that specializes in nurturing the region’s fast-growth entrepreneurial sector, has named American Made Dorm & Home and its baby bedding group Liz and Roo Fine Baby Bedding as one of its 2014 “Hot Dozen” companies. The “Hot Dozen” highlights twelve of the region’s most innovative and up and coming companies.
The “Hot Dozen” is selected by GLI’s EnterpriseCorp, the Louisville office of the Kentucky Innovation Network. Liz and Roo was selected because it exemplifies some of the innovative work being done in the region’s entrepreneurial community.
Liz and Roo Fine Baby Bedding was founded in 2012 with a vision for creating high quality, made in USA baby bedding and accessories that emphasize safety, workmanship and style. Liz and Roo’s assortment of modern and sophisticated designs are hand made by sewing artisans in North Carolina, supplemented by a small team in Kentucky who specialize in custom bedding. A women-owned business, Liz and Roo strongly promotes bumper-free bedding as recommended by the American Pediatric Society. The company’s products can be found at over 125 stores nationwide, and in addition, has just formed a partnership with Natart Juvenile in Quebec, who will serve as Liz and Roo’s Canadian Distributor.
“GLI is proud to recognize the best and brightest start-ups in our community,” said GLI President and CEO Kent Oyler. “Liz and Roo and its peer Hot Dozen companies are well positioned to do big things and we look forward to celebrating their continuing success.”
“It has been rewarding to watch Liz and Roo grow as a result of helping new parents understand the benefits of bumper-free bedding," said Caroline Eager, owner of Liz and Roo.
