Meika Hollender: Sustain
Co-Founder and Co-CEO
As a founder and CEO of Sustain, Meika Hollender is out to provide safe, toxin-free, vegan, and fair trade condoms and sexual wellness products. She’s also making quite a splash in women’s health.
Hollender is no stranger to slut-shaming trolls who have a problem with women owning a condom company. She says, “Until we as women feel comfortable and proud about our sexuality, we will continue to live in a world where people can tear us down.
And that is exactly what she is doing: 10% of Sustain’s pretax earnings go straight back into women’s reproductive issues including STD testing, breast examinations, family planning, and sex education.
Atima Lui and Nancy Madrid: Nudest
Atima Lui and Nancy Madrid are on a mission to redefine the color nude in the fashion industry. “Nude is a concept. Not a color.” With their company Nudest, bras, panties, shapewear, and hosiery come in a wide range of skin tone options.
Their technology allows you to match your lingerie precisely to your unique skin tone with the help of photo analytics. Practical and totally empowering.
These two Harvard grads are best friends and business partners, exemplifying the concept of “community over competition” when it comes to women in the business world… and in life.

Whitney Wolfe: Bumble
Founder and CEO
Whitney Wolfe, the co-founder of Tinder, gave the popular dating app a big bye-bye when she left and sued the company for sexual harassment.
Instead of backing down from the dating app world or from entrepreneurship, this badass boss decided to one up Tinder with her feminist dating app: Bumble.
“We’re changing the rules of the game,” the Bumble website exclaims. You still swipe left or right, but women have to make the first move. Bumble also keeps same sex couples in mind, removing the women-talk-first function to allow either interested party to make the first communication.
