Let's talk about the business of wellness…
My guest today is Dr Elina Berglund, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Natural Cycles, a contraceptive app that is used by over 2 million women across the world. Starting her career as a physicist, and having worked on Nobel Prize winning research discoveries, Elina left a successful career to spend a full year working from home, building the algorithms to offer a hormone-free alternative to birth control.
In this episode, Elina takes us back to the beginning of her career as a physicist, and where the original idea for the business came from. We hear how investors laughed at Elina as she shared her idea for Natural Cycles in a room of 1000 people. And… why the brand is partnering with activity and sleep tracker, Oura Ring to offer a more seamless user experience.
If you want to understand the dynamics of building a truly disruptive brand, and the resilience required to do so... then this episode is for you.
