Mike Gelb
The Consumer VC takes a look into early-stage consumer investing and venture capital. If you are interested in learning about consumer trends, have a b2c business and interested in learning about the fundraising process at the early stage, you have come to the right place. Mike interviews some of the top venture capitalists in the world that focus on B2C and consumer type companies or have a deep track record investing in these categories such as marketplaces, SaaS, social, CPG and non-tech subscription. Mike also interviews founders that are building some of the most disruptive consumer facing companies in the world. The conversation usually includes the insight the founder discovered, fundraising strategy, and the pitch. This podcast also includes bonus episodes. Each bonus episode dives into a particular subject that might not have to due with the fundraise or venture capital, but still would be helpful to founders. For example, a bonus episode on brand strategy or how to construct a board of directors. All bonus episodes will be clearly labeled. For all episodes, please visit www.theconsumervc.com.

Episode #118 - Alexandra Fine, Founder/CEO of Dame Products

On today’s episode on The Consumer VC podcast, I was so excited to chat with Alexandra Fine, founder/CEO of Dame Products. They were also named one of the most innovative wellness companies in 2020 by Fast Company.

On this episode we explore:

  • How she started making vibrators

  • Why sexual products should be normalized and not taboo

  • Why Dame Products is suing NYC’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority

  • The pleasure gap

  • Marketing strategies for women’s health products

We touch on a-lot of areas that haven’t been explored yet on the show. Alex was the first founder I’ve had on the podcast that is building a women’s sexual health company. The strategies she’s implemented to reduce the stigma of women’s health are eyeopening.
