In order to grow and expand your natural product brand, you'll have to eventually face the f-word: funding. It's a daunting task for many founders, but Saskia Sorrosa is proving that successful funding is possible—even with no previous entrepreneurial experience.

Sorrosa is the founder and CEO of Fresh Bellies, an innovative baby food brand focused on flavorful, veggie-forward ingredients to train baby's palates to love healthy foods. She went from VP of Marketing at the NBA to CEO of her own rapidly-growing company in just four years, thanks in large part to strategic funding.
