Marma, a women-led health tech startup in Kansas City, was one of 10 companies selected by Springboard Enterprises to join its Inaugural 2024 Women’s Health Innovation Program Cohort. Ultimately, this program aims to normalize women’s health as a mainstream industry.

With a focus on providing personalized nutritional guidance to address the critical gap in maternal health caused by nutritional deficiencies in the majority of women during the birthing years, Marma is a natural fit for the cohort. This opportunity will allow the Marma team to partner with experienced strategic advisors as the startup navigates the next phase of its growth journey.

Marma co-founder Meredith McAllister shared her excitement for joining the cohort: “Springboard has been around for 20-plus years and nearly 900 Springboard companies have gone before us. Their Women’s Health Council includes thought leaders, executives and strategic partners to drive change.”
