Quotes

"MasterCard N>XT opened doors for us that led to real business opportunities and generated capital, which is most valuable as it allows us to grow our business."
...adults worry about the forgetfulness that comes with aging, and fear it might be something more serious," said Cogniciti President Michael Meagher. "In fact, the Brain Health Study showed that dementia/Alzheimer's ranks as the second most feared disease in America behind cancer. Eight of ten Americans surveyed stated that it was very important for them to have access to a brain health assessment that was private, free and supported by clinical research to answer the question 'Is my memory normal or should I see my doctor?' Cogniciti's Brain Health Assessment is exactly that tool, available online for free."
The startups that Cossette selects need to have reached "a sufficient maturity level in the development of their technology and business model."
"We're excited to welcome JOLT as our newest member to PayPal's Startup Blueprint program. Current partners include top tier accelerators, incubators and venture capitalists from around the world" said Robert Schwentker
