Dame Products announced earlier this week that it has raised $4M in seed funding to expand its team and products assortment, fund research and to assemble a clinical advisory board. Participants in the round included Listen Ventures, Chingona Ventures, Reformation Ventures, igniteXL Ventures, Joyance Partners, The Community Funds VC and others.
Dame Founder & CEO Alexandra Fine turned to LinkedIn to share the news:
Dame Products broke Indiegogo records in 2014 (raising $575K), we sold over $1M in products in our first year, we worked with Kickstarter to make space for sexual health products (and raised over $400K), we sold out in Nordstrom in a week, are battling the State of NY Metropolitan Transportation Authority over anti-sexual health ad policy, are profitable, and have donated tens of thousands of dollars to charities working to improve intimacy (RAINN, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, AUDRE LORDE PROJECT INC and others). These are the things I am most proud of.
That being said, I worked my tushy off on this raise and believe this capital will allow us to make an even bigger impact in the world. And I deserve all the likes this post garners.Alexandra Fine on LinkedIn
