Dr. Brittany Barreto is a geneticist who launched the first nationwide DNA-based dating app (Pheramor). The company ultimately closed but she sure did learn a lot! Next, Dr. Barreto was Senior Venture Associate at Capital Factory, the most active venture fund in Texas. She was tasked with opening their Houston branch and had a blast doing it. In 2019 she discovered an industry called FemTech and she learned about the grave inequalities in women’s health. In March 2020, during the covid-19 lockdown, she started a FemTech podcast and gained international traction overnight. Now Dr. Barreto talk about vulvas full time via her 501c3 non-profit, FemTech Focus!
