Joanna Fedorowicz, founder of OvuFriend

As a trained engineer struggling with her own fertility issues, founder Joanna looked for reliable, scientific resources online, but couldn’t find what she was looking for. That’s when she decided to launch OvuFriend. OvuFriend uses personal reproductive health data to develop recommendations and insights for women and couples struggling with fertility, providing each woman with data-driven, personalized feedback and reporting.

In June 2017 she was selected to be part of the first class of the Campus Residency program. That’s where she got confidence to expand her business and managed to take first steps of changing her pricing strategy and improving web analytics. Since its launch OvuFriend has already helped 40,000 women get pregnant.
