For the first episode of Pitched, I’m sharing a conversation I had with my friend Kristen Carbone of the tech company Brilliantly. In it, Kristen shares a very particular experience she had of pitching her wearable femtech product to a room full of potential investors – who were all men.
Pay close attention during our conversation to learn what Kristen gained from this encounter. It’s something that is relevant to many pitching scenarios – whether you’re seeking funding, establishing partnerships, or securing podcast interviews. It was great to hear Kristen reaffirm my long-held belief in this essential practice!
Pitched: A Femtech Product to a Room Full of Dudes
Topics covered include:
- What is femtech?
- Kristen’s story and why she developed the Brilliantly Warm wearable tech solution
- Why Kristen wanted to approach external funders to develop her product
- What she learned from the experience of pitching a femtech product to a room full of men, and why she won’t be discouraged from doing it again
- The preparatory work that Kristen now does before pitching herself
