We grew to $4M revenue in our first year – Lauren Schulte Wang, CEO and Founder of The Flex CompanyFeatured
Hi Elpha, I’m Lauren Schulte Wang and I’m the CEO and Founder of The Flex Company (YC 2016). Our mission is to create life-changing, body positive experiences through the products we make and the conversations we spark. We work hand-in-hand with our customers to understand what they don’t like about their periods, and design bespoke products to improve their lives. We’re known for our namesake FLEX discs, which offer 12 hours of leak-free period protection, including during swimming, sex and sleep. Our newest product is the FLEX cup, which is a completely redesigned menstrual cup that’s as simple to remove as a tampon (coming next month!) Before launching Flex I gained over ten years of experience in marketing in the startup and corporate world including working at Coca-Cola, Autodesk and Upwork.Company culture is extremely important to me. The Flex Company values are:- Choose Love Over Fear- Have a Growth Mindset- Optimize for Trust - Be YouI’m passionate about our customers, entrepreneurship, innovation, health and wellness, marketing and branding and, of course, company culture.Ask me anything about starting a business, fundraising, hiring and managing a team, innovating in a new space, branding, subscription services, leadership, growing a company or anything else!
