Today’s guest Kimba Williams and her co-founder Board Certified OB/GYN, Dr. Barb met on a cruise. They got to talking and discovered that even though they could find nontoxic alternatives for everything from shampoo to body lotion, they struggled to find natural options for feminine health and hygiene products.
After the cruise, they decided to team up and worked with a chemist to develop Kushae – a line of natural, non-toxic feminine health & hygiene solutions that support women from menstruation to menopause. 4 years later, they have raised a $1.25 million dollar seed round and are available at Whole Foods, Wegmans and Amazon.
In this episode, Kimba not only shares the story of how they built Kushae but also dives into the details of their fundraising process.
