Rachael Kim: Panelist and CEO of My Comma
My Comma is an organic period care subscription platform amplifying women/BIPOC led brands to power new period routines. My Comma represents the pause to take care of oneself, acknowledge the different facets of you, and the fact that it takes more than yourself to change the social conversation around menstrual health. This work gave rise to the successful Femtech Salon series taking place in LA, ATL, and AUS with other high growth cities in the US planned for the rest of 2023. The Femtech Salons support and amplify diverse femtech founders by creating more connected ecosystems in their respective regions which has led to partners like Techstars, It All Media, Wefunder, LA Times, Crunchbase, BioscienceLA, Atlanta Tech Village to get involved.
