Show Notes


Today on the show we’re learning from Dr. Amy Divaraniya, the founder of Oova, a women’s health company. 

She has more than 10 years of experience as a data scientist and has both led and published original research in the areas of personal genomics and biomarker discovery. Her solid understanding of biology and being able to apply complex analyses have led to innovative projects in the healthcare space. 

After facing her own struggles with conceiving her son, she decided to build a solution to help women having difficulty getting pregnant. Today, she and her team have built the first at-home test, OOVA, that measures multiple hormones through urine samples and provides personalized results and insights on a woman’s fertility. 

We talk through her journey as a female founder in the VC world and question why things don’t seem to have changed, we talk about the development of something that doesn’t exist in the world and how to find your beta group!
