Foods2Fight is a personalized mobile health app that allows cancer patients to take control of their diet and nutrition during and after treatments. We are committed to giving back what matters the most: your energy, time, and health.

Nutrition plays a vital role in fighting cancer. Both the illness and its treatments can change the taste of food and how the body uses nutrients. Almost 50% of cancer patients who receive chemotherapy and radiation therapy experience taste changes where their favorite foods can taste metallic or even lose its taste. Foods2Fight follows each individual’s food journey and helps patients maintain their nutrition during their battle by recommending recipes and foods based on their appetite and food preferences.

We believe that there’s a crisis of connection happening in today’s workplace. Companies are scrambling to attract and retain the best talent as they know employees are asking for more than just the responsibilities outlined in their titles but a vision they can get behind and people they love to work alongside. Currently, there are no solutions that help companies facilitate more human connection in the workplace at scale.

Jam works by integrating directly into an organization’s calendar system and intelligently schedules face-to-face connections between employees. Employers look to Jam to help new employees feel welcomed on their first day, remote employees feel better connected to the rest of the team, and employees in different departments learn new skills from one another. Jam does all of this while providing comprehensive data that helps business leaders make more informed decision on how to better invest in their people.
