Raising a seed round is hard. Raising a seed round as a female founder is even harder. But raising a seed round as a female founder in the sextech space during the pandemic may sound like an impossible mission. Yet, Chloe Macintosh, founder and CEO of Kama – a new sexual wellness app, managed to secure $3 million in funding from investors including Female Founders Fund and January Ventures, among others.
Kama is the daily, guided practice designed to educate and boost sexual wellbeing and provide both mental and physiological benefits for its user. By tackling stress and addressing body confidence and insecurities, the app is set to be helping people develop a better relationship with their own body, first and foremost, and educating them about pleasure, something that is rarely addressed in sex-education or even within the medical field.
