Jim Shaikh is an entrepreneur and CEO of Feed Me Bottles Ltd who developed the yoomi self-warming baby feeding bottle and the yoomi range of feeding products. Jim completed a MEng at Imperial College before obtaining a PhD from Cambridge University.
Initially an academic in London, Jim quickly moved into mainstream engineering with BMW Rover and then into consulting engineering. He completed an Executive MBA at London Business School and was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug when awarded first prize at the LBS Entrepreneurship Summer School.
The yoomi feeding system features patented technology that gives parents the freedom to provide feeds warmed to exactly the right temperature anytime and any place at the touch of a button. Yoomi is unique and has the potential to disrupt the traditional feeding market by bringing together “bottles” and “warming devices” to create a new category.
Feed Me Bottles has raised approx £2.5m in equity investment since its inception in 2007 and launched the yoomi product range in the UK in 2010. The business moved beyond breakeven in 2015 and now has a presence in 21 international markets including China with more planned for 2016.
At its core, the business remains an engineering company and is currently engaged in developing additional products based on the unique yoomi self-warming technology focused on the medical sector. Find out more at: www.yoomi.com
