PEPPER
A PERSONAL NUTRITIONIST ON YOUR KITCHEN COUNTER

Pepper started with the goal to help people eat better. About 117 million U.S. adults have a chronic disease that can be prevented or better managed by a change in diet. They empower people to take control of how they eat at home, through access to information and community guidance. They are building a ground-up platform that takes everything we know about food and puts it where it should be – our kitchens.

KOZHYA
ACTIVE SKINCARE AT CELL LEVEL

KOZHYA is an innovative at-home skin care treatment developed to improve and maintain skin’s health. The KOZHYA AIR device, paired with KOZHYA serum, lifts and rejuvenates the skin using micro-particle technology. The action of this particulate jet-stream relaxes the underlying muscles, de-stressing the skin. The result is a lessening of fine lines and a healthy, radiant glow.

To create KOZHYA, they spent over 2 years with cosmetic scientists, engineers, and aestheticians with a goal to create an on-the-go, natural but powerful skin care solution.

Yoanna Gouchtchina, Founder of KOZHYA, has previously co-founded 2 other successful companies. Her long standing fascination and grasp on technology commercialization started her career with commercializing nuclear technologies, and has now shifted to pharma, health & beauty.

Key Milestones
