This week at YEC, we want to celebrate three members and member companies who have been recognized for their outstanding achievements.
1. Premama receives Nexty Award for Best New Supplement Delivery Format
YEC member Dan Aziz's company, Premama, won the New Hope Nexty Award for Best New Supplement Delivery Format. The Premama Fertility Reproductive Support Supplement was one of 57 finalists across 19 awards categories. Selected by a panel of natural products experts, the awards are given to the most innovative brands in the natural products industry.
Premama's various supplements offer an innovative, convenient alternative to taking prenatal vitamins. Unlike the prenatal pill, Premama's dissolvable powder seamlessly blends with water and soft foods.
2. Acceleration Partners ranks under Fortune's "50 Best Workplaces for Flexibility"
The list ranked companies across industries based on their ability to offer employees a healthy work-life balance, and an environment centered around fairness, leadership and communication. More than 500 companies in the nation were considered.
“At Acceleration Partners, flexibility and accountability have always been an integral part of our core values," said Glazer. "We believe that engaged, happy employees are the foundation of a successful and sustainable growth business and this award is recognition of all the hard work that our team puts into maintaining our unique culture.”

3. Jason Grill receives Ingram's Magazine's 40 Under 40 Award
YEC member Jason Grill, founder of JGrill Media and co-founder of Sock 101, received Ingram’s Magazine’s 40 Under 40 Award, which recognizes the achievements of the young executives, professionals and community leaders in the Kansas City area.
At only 36 years old, Ingram’s Magazine honored Jason for his successful, growing career as a media and public affairs consultant, entrepreneur work and civic involvement.
“Positivity, drive and communication. If you’re personable and lead with a smile, create a culture that communicates and sets expectations, and have a work ethic that is persistent, yet patient and open-minded, you will be a successful leader,” said Jason.
