ViSalus Co-Founder Donates $1 Million to Support Entrepreneurship

Nick Sarnicola, Co-Founder and Global Ambassador of ViSalus™, has pledged $1 million to the Sarnicola Foundation to support young, aspiring entrepreneurs.

Sarnicola grew up in a blue-collar, middle-class family in Grand Rapids, Mich., and was exposed to entrepreneurship at a young age. While building a national salesforce for a telecommunications company, Sarnicola found his calling to inspire young adults to follow the path of entrepreneurship.

After co-founding ViSalus with Ryan Blair and Blake Mallen, Sarnicola’s passion for encouraging this career path carried over, and he created the Sarnicola Foundation in 2011 with his wife, Ashley Sarnicola. The mission of the foundation is to foster entrepreneurship by providing mentorship, scholarships and funding to young aspiring entrepreneurs.

Founded in 2005 with headquarters in Los Angeles and Troy, Mich., ViSalus is the company behind the Body by Vi™ Challenge, a 90-day health transformation platform. ViSalus™ is majority owned by Blyth Inc.
