We’re joined by Cindy Eckert, Founder and CEO of The Pink Ceiling, a business incubator and VC firm that invests in women-led and female-focused companies. A self-made serial entrepreneur, Cindy is one of the few women to have ever sold a company for a billion dollars, let alone two pharmaceutical companies. In fact, it was Cindy’s second venture, Sprout Pharmaceuticals, that brought Addyi aka “the female Viagra” to market.

Having successfully built two billion-dollar companies, Cindy has such a wealth of knowledge and experience that we had to invite her back for part two which will air on Wednesday, 10/28.

So tune in to part one as Cindy reveals the true story of how she built her own startup and sold it for over a billion dollars, only to buy it back and rebuild the company when she learned that her life-changing product for women was not going to market.

We’re also diving deep into the narrative surrounding female sexuality and the challenges with research for female products, as well as, funding for companies founded or led by women.

If you have a mission and are in need of motivation, this episode will inspire you to keep going even when the odds are stacked against you!
