“The startups in M-1 Ventures’ first-ever cohort each have an ambitious and innovative solution to a health and wellness issue, the talent and passion to accelerate their development, and the capability to leverage the resources that our accelerator provides,” says Tony D’Agostino, a co-director of M-1 Ventures along with Paul Singh. “We believe support from M-1 Ventures will help startups build on the traction they have already established and reach their potential.”
