Anahita was born to an entrepreneurial family and has never known any other way of life. When she had her first child there was no question about quitting her 9-5 job running her own travel agency to work from home for herself.
Her goal had been to settle on a business that she found equally satisfying and possible to run from home by the time her kids were both in school. The GoGo Bags concept came to her one sleepless night in July just a month before her first child began kindergarten, Anahita was lying in bed contemplating how she would like to give her son the healthiest and most eco-friendly snack options for school; her intentions went beyond just the food. She got up in excitement at 2am and researched and planned the business through the night. At 6 in the morning she called her mother and told her “we have a business!” and their line of reusable sandwich bags was born.
Over the next 4 months, the mother-daughter team did a lot of researching materials and testing prototypes. They launched Gogo Bags at a Christmas Market in November 2010.
Anahita has a passion for people and creating things to make their lives better. Gogo Bags are products that not only make our lives easier and our eco footprints smaller, but they are also fun and easy for children to use, something that’s important to Anahita and moms everywhere.
