Founder Story Nugget
Melissa Hanna is the co-founder of Mahmee, a Los Angeles-based prenatal and postpartum care management platform that looks to increase positive health outcomes for moms and babies.
“One of the challenges underrepresented founders, like myself, are facing today is we don’t have the typical backgrounds compared with the previous generation of founders in Silicon Valley,” she told Business Insider. “We don’t fit into the San Francisco, Palo Alto white boys club.”
Hanna founded Mahmee in Los Angeles with her mother, Linda Hanna, in 2014 when they saw the disconnect between large healthcare providers and the networks of independent maternity care professionals who are not doctors, like nutritionists or lactation specialists.
