Building a company during the pandemic is hard; raising $71.5 million in the fertility sector is an impressive feat at any time. Today, Oma Fertility co-founder Kiran Joshi and Root Ventures Partner Chrissy Meyer join TechCrunch Live at 12 p.m. PDT to talk us through: building in healthcare during a global pandemic and how they stood out in the virtual world.
Unlike many other fertility providers, Oma focuses on the male infertility side of the equation. The founders created a novel sperm identification and insemination tool that supports embryologists in the process. Building a company with this level of regulatory oversight during a pandemic is difficult. Co-founder and serial entrepreneur Kiran Joshi will be sharing how he and the team navigated turbulent waters with their investor, Chrissy Meyer.
Chrissy Meyer is a veteran investor and hardware expert. Hailing from the likes of Apple and Pearl Automation, Meyer brings a wise eye to the board of Oma Fertility. She will highlight the investor perspective: how they made the jump to virtual-first investments, healthcare investment in a crowded market and how founders should best communicate with their investors.
