Maternova was named by Women Deliver as " one of the 50 best ideas for women." We had developed relationships with some of the leading practitioners in midwifery and had developed mid-sized customers and had gained strong operational experience. We sold to the United Nations, humanitarian groups and to about 15 countries. And we won a national LivePlan business plan competition. The number of exclusive products began to grow rapidly and we invested in marketing.
Our company was being contacted directly by Ministries of Health and private hospitals from Brazil to Malaysia, and from Colombia to South Africa. We had now shipped into 40 countries and expanded our offerings and exclusive distribution agreements with entrepreneurs. The company began to partner with major brands to acclerate distribution through our unique channels. Maternova was named by Huffington Post as a top 20 social media outlet in maternal health and our work was published in top medical journals as well as business publications. We also filed our first patent in the obstetric space.
Maternova Inc. added a line of rapid diagnostics to test schistosomiasis, syphillis and a range of other diseases. The company launched major partnerships with corporates seeking our unique distribution model. We now sell to some of the largest humanitarian organizations in the world, as well as top tier private hospitals in the United States and around the world. Maternova developed protective apparel (NovaVeil) and received funding from Grand Challenges Canada as well as an equity crowdfunding campaign on Republic. The innovations received media attention from NPR, BBC World Radio, Mashable and Forbes.com.
