At BlogHer, our mission to support women entrepreneurs comes to life during The Pitch, the on-stage competition for women business leaders. During the competition, three women will pitch their product or service to a high-level panel of judges and the BlogHer attendees. This year, our lineup of Pitchers have businesses in the health and wellness field, ranging from a consumer facing fem-tech product to an anonymous digital space that connects women who have health-related queries and concerns. Please join us in welcoming the amazing women who are making positive strides in the health and wellness industry in 2019: Ana Pompa Alarcón of findSisterhood, Ella Mihov of Lune, and Jenna Anderson of Soft Health Technologies!
Ana Pompa Alarcón: Ana is the CEO and founder of findSisterhood. She is Mexican, Austrian and the mom of Leila and Ezra. findSisterhood is an anonymous app for women, a safe space to connect with each other and get support. Women facing domestic violence or sexual assault get help among other women without revealing their identity. findSisterhood has collected over 40,000 stories from all over the world about sex, relationship, gender based violence, mental illness and other topics usually not talked about online. Women get help, encouragement and a support system from others in the same situation. Her company has helped many victims to get the courage to come forward and report, leave their abusive relationships, go to therapy or sometimes just know that they are not alone.
