AI Podcast Summary
Rachael Kim is the CEO and founder of Femtech Salon, a pre-accelerator and events community that supports women and non-binary entrepreneurs in the femtech industry.
Femtech Salon aims to amplify femtech founders and create an ecosystem for their success in a male-dominated industry.
Rachael believes that the difficulty in funding and supporting femtech startups is due to outdated systems that were not designed with them in mind.
The Femtech Salon started as a subscription platform called My Comma, which was focused on amplifying femtech founders and has now been folded into the pre-accelerator.
The My Comma subscription box includes three months of period care products and self-care items for a more accessible and convenient experience.
The femtech marketplace is a $1 trillion industry with great potential for unicorns and success.
The pre-accelerator program provided by Femtech Salon helps entrepreneurs at different stages, from ideation to scaling up.
Rachael's superpower is being an advocate for equity in all forms, driven by her own experiences of discrimination and underestimation.
She has used her advocacy skills to help her team members secure tech jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rachael's advice for becoming a better advocate is to first know yourself, find your voice, and then test it out.
