“MenoLabs is a company founded to fundamentally change menopause in the United States,” tells Vanessa Ford, Co-Founder of MenoLabs, a brand that provides natural products to relieve menopause symptoms.
Vanessa did doctoral research around cognitive studies and learned about human brains along with storytelling. She pivoted into marketing, nonprofits and then started MenoLabs in 2019 to change women’s options for treating menopausal symptoms, which includes the not-so-small task of improving the education and research done on this subject and changing how society views menopause.
Their consumers validate the brand’s existence. Interestingly, MenoLabs has operated mainly as a flat organization where they work collaboratively and bring different expertise areas to solve challenges. They iterate, adapt, fail, learn, fail forward, keep on learning, adapting, and make decisions based on data in front of them.

* Her gratitude towards her Co-Founder, Danielle Jacobs
* Overview of the brand

* Effect of menopause from an entrepreneurial standpoint
