Background on Team
MBA students Matt Edmundson and Jenny Tsai (both Stern ’12) made a product that tackles a serious social problem in India. By creating iron-enriched biscuits and food products, the team is addressing India’s anemia problem, which affects more than 50% of pregnant women in that country. Understanding cultural symptoms and nutritional needs of this population, the founders won the $200,000 Entrepreneurs Challenge (social venture track) in 2012.
