ChickRx

Women constantly seek advice on things like weight loss, skincare, relationships, sex, anxiety, etc. - it’s an everyday behavior. But instead of talking to friends, which doesn’t provide anonymity or the best information, they should be able to connect with the appropriate experts, and do so cheaply and easily.

ChickRx democratizes wellness advice, making it convenient, quick, and affordable for women to speak with experts over the phone or chat. Meanwhile, ChickRx helps experts like dietitians, marriage and family therapists, sex therapists, skincare professionals, etc. supplement their incomes. The existing ChickRx site, a Q&A platform, has grown from 40k monthly uniques to nearly a million in only seven months, and with just two employees.

Founded by Meghan Muntean and Stacey Borden, Princeton and Harvard/HBS graduates, ChickRx completed the Rock Health accelerator, won the New Media Women Entrepreneurs award, and previously raised $540,000 in seed funding.
