In early 2012, David Nemelka learned about a scientifically validated product developed by Dr. Kedar Prasad on behalf of the Department of Defense. Over $23 million was spent on the successful validation of this product, originally called Military Micronutrient Formulation (MMF), and now called Micro Daily. At that time, Dr. Prasad was looking for a partner to bring MMF, the pinnacle of his 40 years of research and science on micronutrients and antioxidants, to the mass market.
After graduating from the Wharton School with my MBA in 1993, David’s first job was with Proctor and Gamble in their Health Care division. He was responsible for evaluating the research and science that was being publicized about the optimal health benefits of antioxidants and micronutrients. As a lifelong entrepreneur, though P&G was a great company and training ground for the beginning of his career, David’s desire to be master of his own destiny, moved him to leave P&G and start his own Venture Capital company. As a venture capitalist, he was always looking for new business opportunities. In early 2012, that opportunity knocked on his door when a mutual friend asked if I was interested in meeting with Dr. Prasad's company and learning more about their MMF product. Because of his early career efforts on supplements with P&G, I was intrigued.
