Lightship Capital has expanded its interest in women’s health with investment into feminine care brand, Femi Secrets.
Developed by President and Founder Davielle Jackson as a solution for a friend experiencing heavy menstrual flow and leaking, Femi’s signature product the Pretty Panty has become the standard in innovative, effective feminine hygiene.
“I've created a space for the stigma, the taboo— to be removed pertaining to women having periods.” Says Femi founder and president Davielle Jackson. “Femi Secrets is a safe place, providing the safest and healthiest periods— and we look forward to working with Lightship Capital in changing the face of fem care!”
With success at retailers like Wegmans, and on it’s own e-commerce store, the company is working to expand its product line and presence at other retailers. Lightship has lead the round to move the company closer to this goal.
“With our investment into Femi Secrets, we're excited to continue working with brilliant founders on the journey to creating healthier, and happier women around the globe.” Says Lightship Capital Senior Associate Alexis Alston. “Femi is a remarkable company which aligns with our commitment to investing in innovations around women’s health.”
