She created Addyi, the first FDA-approved drug for women with low libidos, dubbed by the media as “the female Viagra”, and sold the company that created it —Sprout Pharmaceuticals — for $1 BILLION. And now, Cindy Whitehead isn’t slowing down. She’s created the Pink Ceiling… a venture to help more women focused businesses get the funding they need to skyrocket like she did.
A fitting name given Cindy’s signature pink outfits and matching lipstick — the new company is a cross between a VC firm, a ‘pinkubator’ and a consulting enterprise. Her mission is to mentor, invest in, launch.
