Need proof that we’re in the golden age of wellness?
Look no further than the brilliant start-ups and entrepreneurs who entered FounderMade’s The Future of Wellness Challenge. The Shark Tank-style contest offers one lucky health or fitness innovator a serious vitality shot (not the juice kind) with a cash prize and investment opportunity, free office space, pro guidance, and more.
With so many amazing entries this year, the FounderMade gurus had a tough task of narrowing down the field to just ten, all featured below. “This is our third time doing this, so the businesses get better and better; the vision, the passion, and the social impact are stronger and more insightful,” says FounderMade co-founder May Lan Dong.
For the final round, three of the ten companies will compete on stage on January 30 at Spring Studios, pitching their companies to successful entrepreneurs-CEOs (including ClassPass’ founder Payal Kadakia and Today Show nutrition expert Joy Bauer). “The pitch competition is where the FounderMade mission comes to life,” notes Dong.
That’s where you come in: Two of the finalists will be selected by the FounderMade team and advisors—and one will be chosen as a Well+Good fan favorite!
Watch the videos below and vote for your favorite to send them to the finals. Voting closes on Monday, January 25 at 9 p.m. EST.
