Wondercide and the other awarded companies---Thunderbird Energetica, VERB (Co-Founders of Birds Barbershop), Whynatte and Primizie---will participate in an intensive, 12-week mentoring program, which will provide access to business resources that are normally unattainable for startup stage and young companies. After the program, they will receive an additional 2 years of mentorship and support.
Founder & CEO Stephanie Boone created Wondercide in 2009, after Luna, her 13-year-old Akita-Husky, suffered a near-fatal reaction to a flea medication prescribed by her vet. The company's mission, according to Boone, is to educate consumers about the dangers of toxic, chemical pesticides and provide a safer, equally effective alternative for pets, people, and property. Since its inception, demand for organic pest control has been on the rise, and Wondercide's line of natural and organic products continues to grow as a result.
