Motherlove Wins Prestigious Award
June 26, 2017
Motherlove is honored to announce that we have been named a 2017 Colorado Company to Watch, acknowledging the drive, excellence and influence of Motherlove as a growing company. Colorado Companies to Watch honors second stage companies that develop valuable products and services, create quality jobs, enrich communities, and create new industries throughout Colorado.
“Motherlove’s strong roots in Colorado were established in 1987, and we have flourished from there,” says CEO, Silencia Cox. “The company was born in the high meadows of the Rocky Mountains, and was conceived of and grew around my mother, Kathryn Higgins’, kitchen table as the hand-made herbal products she made for her own pregnancy and birth became so popular that she was asked to make them for a local retailer. Thirty years later, Motherlove is now an international company that remains family owned. Our products are still made with love in Colorado using Kathryn’s original recipes and we are dedicated to crafting only the finest, purest products, using certified organic ingredients designed to nurture and soothe women during their pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding journey.”
“We are pleased to recognize Motherlove Herbal Company as one of Colorado’s 50 most innovative 2nd stage companies,” says Rick Ninneman, Colorado Companies to Watch Board Chairman. “These companies contribute significantly to the growth and economic independence of the state by developing new services and products, creating jobs, enriching communities and generating new industries.”
Colorado Companies to Watch works to recognize the driving economic forces in the state by focusing not merely on growth, but on the true impact and influence of an organization. By focusing on second stage companies across the state, the program offers distinct insight into the state’s economic landscape and recognizes organizations often overlooked for the critical impact they have in their industries, communities and regions, as well as our state as a whole.
