Kindra, a Los Angeles, CA-based modern wellness brand for menopause essentials, closed a $4.5m seed funding round.
The round was led by the Female Founders Fund with participation from Primetime Partners, Anne and Susan Wojcicki, Katie Couric Media, The Community Fund, and H Ventures.
The company intends to use the new capital to drive continued growth and expansion of the business.
Led by CEO Catherine Balsam-Schwaber, Kindra makes scientifically formulated, estrogen-free, and plant-powered menopause essentials. The vaginal lotion and naturally-derived supplements were created to address some of the most common effects of menopause including sleeplessness, hot flashes, brain fog, vaginal dryness, and more.
