Meet Emma, recent graduate of Brown University and the founder & CEO of Intimately, a startup that is igniting an inclusive revolution by selling functional and fashionable lingerie for women with disabilities. Emma has been featured in Forbes, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Entrepreneur, The Boston Globe, and was named one of Forbes next 1000!
Listen to Emma share how her 501 hustle developed into a full-time job, as she went from frantically shipping boxes from her college dorm room to raising money from investors, and moving to Station F in Paris. With the help of Brown’s Nelson Centre for Entrepreneurship, and a $20,000 Kickstarter campaign, Emma has created a beautiful, branded, one-stop shop for adaptive lingerie that is both functional and fashionable. Intimately serves the dual function of being an e-commerce site specifically targeted towards women with disabilities, and providing a community for them to engage in discussions about intimacy, sex and all things womanhood. The Gen-Z spirit of inclusivity runs through the entire shopping experience– from easy-to-open shipping boxes, to an all-women team, over half of whom are disabled themselves.
Emma would love to meet other Gen Z entrepreneurs, and will soon be hiring, so DM her on IG! @intimately.co
