Dearest Supporters, Community Members, and fellow Period-Enthusiasts (we don’t go a single month without it!),
Happy International Women’s Day! What better time to hear about our progress on the world’s first smart tampon? We’re very excited to have you all on board with us, and to be emailing you from Shenzhen, China, where we’re working on all my.Flow, all the time!
IT ALL STARTED...
In Spring 2015. When this idea was born in a classroom at Berkeley, we had no idea that our simple project would turn into both a multinational journey, and a company with acclaimed investors like HAX. Three hardware iterations, tens of pitches, and thousands of dollars of airfare later, we are living (some nights, literally) at one of the world’s top hardware accelerators, gradually turning this dream into a reality. We have spent the last six weeks working hard on our product: a connected tampon that will empower women, and everyone else who menstruates, through insight.
WE ARE IMPROVING THE PERIOD EXPERIENCE.
80% of women we surveyed want to buy a product that protects against leakage. By connecting you to your flow at a level never before seen, we’re not just protecting against leakage, we’re making it obsolete. Our tampon relays data to your smartphone in real time, allowing you to track your current saturation level, and sends you a notification when it’s time to change. Our app will get smarter throughout the months as you gather more data on your lightest and heaviest times.
