Cora Raises $7.5M in Funding

coraCora, a San Francisco, CA-based women’s wellness brand whose product portfolio includes natural and organic tampons, pads, and other personal care, raised $7.5m in Series A1 funding.

The round was led by Harbinger Ventures, with participation from existing investors Cambridge SPG.

The company will use the funds to support brick-and-mortar expansion at Target, including broader in-store product offerings and to accelerate product innovation.

Co-founded by Molly Hayward and Morgen Newman, Cora offers both innovative products and accessories like a chic storage container and travel case for women to manage their period through busy days. Combining their innovative and holistic period care solution with a comprehensive social impact model, Cora has provided five million pads to girls in need in India and Kenya, and 100,000 products to women in need in the U.S. to ensure they can experience their periods with the health and dignity they deserve.

The products are available via subscription at, at Target or on Amazon.
