Rachel Braun Scherl has been speaking publicly and loudly for over a decade about the need to bring women’s health businesses that offer meaningful solutions to the marketplace. When the story broke a decade ago about the disparity between access to advertising for men and women’s sexual products, people were incredulous. Rachel and her business partner couldn’t believe that we had approached 100 media outlets – from network to cable, radio and websites, only to be rejected for over 95% of those sexual health companies (focusing on one I co-founded and ran), people were incredulous. But now a decade later, hundreds of businesses in the space have been created years and many have raised significant funds. Numerous sources of financing, beyond traditional venture capital, have seen the value and the opportunity in these businesses.
With a wellspring of deep personal experience over 20+ years in pharmaceuticals, consumer products and women’s health, Rachel provides unique perspectives on leadership and business building, and the money that can be made by capitalizing on market opportunities.
Rachel wrote her best-selling book: Orgasmic Leadership: Profiting from the Coming Surge in Women’s Health and Wellness to tell the not-so-lonely obstacle-filled stories of resilience of the entrepreneurs in the rapidly growing global women’s sexual health and wellness space.
