EASTCHESTER, NY, November 12, 2020
BITTYLAB, LLC, a business specializing in feeding devices for infants with GER (gastroesophageal reflux,) is proud to announce the national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) and Women Owned Small Business (WOSB) by the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization – New York, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
“We are very proud to receive the WBE and WOSB certification which will help Bittylab advance into the health and medical fields,” said, Priska Diaz, M.S. Founder & CEO of Bittylab. With humble beginnings, Bittylab started at Priska’s kitchen table with her hand-made prototype after her baby began to show high symptoms of GER. Fast forward ten years, her invention is an innovative air-free feeding device for babies suffering from severe gas, colic, recurrent spit-up, GER, and diagnosed GERD. A pilot clinical study showed that 75% of babies no longer met the clinical criteria for GER after using Bare® Air-free for two weeks. Bare® Air-free launched nationwide in 2016 and is available for purchase at BuyBuy Baby and bittylab.com/shop. Published in major news outlets, Bittylab is one of the few Latina-led and founded MedTech startups in the US.
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women Presidents’ Educational Organization – New York is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
