Back in 2016 when Nicole decided to start an online store selling probiotics for female health, she quickly realised that the internet had not levelled the playing field for female health focused startups like it had for other categories of products and services. In fact, there were so many hurdles to overcome online and in several other arenas that Nicole decided to create an opportunity for other FemTech founders and supporters to connect and join forces in solving this problem.
Nicole's mission is to transform the collective frustration felt by innovators creating better products and services for female health into a global movement for collaboration between the entire FemTech ecosystem.
Through over six years of experience providing marketing and project management services to non profits, Nicole has developed the ability to think creatively about raising capital and strategically using all the resources available to achieve her mission.
