Look, sex is an important part of life. For men, it seems that’s a given. But for too long, women have been told their sexual health doesn’t matter. After blazing a trail in the men’s sexual health industry, Cindy Eckert decided this inequality wasn’t fair. She founded Sprout Pharmaceuticals and helped design the first drug approved to enhance female libido. Surprisingly (or not), it was a massive success. We talk about why she entered the sexual health industry and what she’s doing to even the playing field for female entrepreneurs.
