When Alexandra Fine co-founded Dame, a women-founded sex toy company looking to close the pleasure gap, not everyone was on board with her vision. She got a lot of pushback - from traditional investors to advertisers - as she sought to change how the world looked at sex toys and pleasure. So this week: we spoke to Alexandra about how she navigated those obstacles and came up with creative solutions to get Dame off the ground.

In this episode, Alexandra shares:

  • How they funded the businesses when investors said ‘no’
  • How she’s built her team
  • Why Dame has to get creative with how they advertise their products
  • How she overcame people who doubted her mission
  • Why Dame is suing the MTA
