Welcome back to What’s NEXT, the podcast exploring the technology of the future. This is the latest in a series of conversations from the Slush conference in Helsinki hosted by VentureBeat European tech correspondent Chris O’Brien.
In this episode, Chris talks with Valentina Milanova, founder and CEO of Daye, a feminine care startup that designs products with women in mind. They’ll discuss the challenges Valentina faced creating tampons designed to provide pain relief quicker and leave the body quicker than oral pain relievers, how she pitched it to investors and how her company is working to move from pilot manufacturing into full-scale industrial manufacturing.
