“Step One Foods — a startup based out of COCO and founded by Cardiologist Elizabeth Klodas, that has been selected by Google for Entrepreneurs as a finalist for Google Demo Day on Thursday, June 8 at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, California. Representing the Twin Cities and the local COCO community, she will have the opportunity to pitch her platform to a room full of top investors, VCs and judges for a chance to secure Series A funding of $1-4M.”
More than 120 million Americans suffer from chronic disease, and many can’t or don’t want to rely solely on medications to improve their health. To help those individuals, Step One has developed a variety of precisely formulated proprietary whole foods that are as easy-to-use as pharmaceuticals, and can achieve medication-level results without the negative side effects associated with prescription drugs. Step One has also worked with gener8tor, a locally-based, nationally ranked accelerator that invests in high-growth startups.
Each year, Google Demo Day brings a diverse group of startups, chosen by their local tech hubs, from across North America to Silicon Valley to showcase their technology and meet investors and mentors. Google for Entrepreneurs works with its ten tech hub partners, including COCO, across North America (called the North American Tech Hub Network) to identify great startups to represent their city at Demo Day.
