BOSTON, MASS — APRIL 4, 2023 /SPORTSWIRE WOMEN/ – Inc. today announced its sixth annual Female Founders list, honoring an outstanding group of 200 leaders whose innovations and leadership are creating positive change in the world. The founders cross all industries and bring with them unique stories of success from each stage of the entrepreneurial journey.
Nix Biosensors, the leading consumer hydration biosensor company, is honored to announce the inclusion of CEO, Meridith Cass, to this list of dynamic women. Cass founded Nix with the mission to change the way we practice healthcare by providing new tools to help consumers access, understand, and act on their personal biology outside traditional settings of healthcare. Under her leadership, the company has developed its first product – a revolutionary biosensor and corresponding software app that measures hydration levels in real-time, helping athletes, soldiers, and laborers monitor their hydration needs and avoid the negative effects of dehydration. The Nix Hydration Biosensor launched last December.
Cass is thrilled to be included in this group of accomplished female entrepreneurs and sees it as a testament to Nix’s dedication to improving health and wellness through innovative technology. “I am honored to be named to the Inc. Female Founders 200 list alongside so many inspiring women,” said Cass. “This recognition is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the entire Nix team who are committed to empowering people with the tools they need to optimize their health and wellness.”
Cass is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College, where she received the Anna Pell Wheeler Prize in Mathematics, a Harvard Business School graduate, a Kauffman Fellow, and a Harvard Business School Blavatnik Fellow. Prior to starting Nix, Cass worked with several Boston and New York based venture capital firms in the creation of seven life science and consumer portfolio companies, leveraging a venture creation model. She is a former collegiate basketball player-turned-runner and has run nine marathons including all of the World Majors. Cass is a staunch believer that truly disruptive innovation in healthcare will be driven by highly personalized data in the hands of the consumer, and that this model has the power to transform today’s sick-care system into a practice of proactive health care.
Each year, Inc.editors review thousands of applications highlighting female founders who are challenging the status quo and tackling some of the world’s biggest problems. The list features women who have overcome challenges and lifted those around them, while leading impactful organizations across the country. They join the ranks of previous honorees including Jessica Alba, Tracee Ellis Ross, Rihanna, and Shonda Rhimes.
“These 200 female founders have identified solutions to difficult problems and created valuable, industry-changing companies out of them. We congratulate this year’s list on their achievements and look forward to their continued success,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk.
