Summary Style


In this episode of Black Businesses Matter, I speak with Angelique Warner, founder and president of A Warner Idea LLC and the visionary behind GoGoVie premium baby carrier. Angelique details her upbringing, describing herself as inquisitive and a dreamer in her childhood. Not only did she dream vividly, but she could also recall her dreams in great detail; these traits proved to be her asset as she went on to become an inventor in her adult life. 

Angelique led a busy life in early motherhood; she was a mother of three small children and ran an in-home boarding school, with up to 17 children in her home at a time. This busyness bore inspiration. When her children became self-sufficient, she embarked on creating a solution to a common parenting challenge: needing a hands-free customizable carrier. She invented the 7-in-1 hybrid sling & buckled carrier, later dubbed GoGoVie. She recounts the journey of patenting and manufacturing her product, as well as refining its name through different iterations. Recognizing a need, Angelique shifted the target audience from mothers to all parents and caretakers.

Angelique Warner is the USA's first Black female to create & manufacture the only patented 7-in-1 hybrid sling & buckled carrier; boasting a 5-in-1 private, hands-free breastfeeding solution. She continues to create purposeful products that help improve healthcare outcomes for babies through babywearing, bonding & breastfeeding & improving the overall quality of life of the user.
