Pitching to Male Investors

April 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


How do you sell weddings or beauty or even – dare we say it – vaginal health to investors?

With an investor base that is 99% male, which reflects the industry, Chia Chia will share her learnings about pitching, investor relations and equity financing. As a female CEO who has raised a seed round of over $2 million, she is embarking on a Series A to further develop Damiva Inc., the 100% natural personal care company. Be prepared to hear about Chia Chia’s secrets, heart aches, successes and how she builds her own resilience while executing on an aggressive and female-centric vision delivered to a mainly male investor base.

About the Speaker:

Chia Chia Sun

Chia Chia Sun is a pharmaceutical executive turned women’s health entrepreneur. She is CEO of Damiva Inc., a personal care company dedicated to innovation in manufacturing 100% natural products for women. Chia Chia started on her path when she discovered that there are simply very few effective and safe products for vaginal health. She has grown Damiva into a global company selling vaginal, skincare and beauty products to top pharmacy, health food and retail mass chains. With a background in genetics, finance and the pharmaceutical industry, Chia Chia now spends her days on taboo abolishing, speaking to women about their health and beauty needs, generating sales and raising money for a fast growing company.


The series is designed with the female entrepreneur in mind and tailored to your specific needs and challenges. Gender-related issues in the sector will be examined and discussed in depth. The focus is on acknowledging where there are differences as well as opportunities for women entrepreneurs. You will leave each session empowered with the information, ideas, and resources to reach your business potential.

It is the perfect learning and networking opportunity for women considering entrepreneurship and women with early stage businesses who want to accelerate growth. Advanced Manufacturing, defined as the use of innovative technology, processes and methodology to improve products and services will also be one of our key themes. Topics explored will range from the Entrepreneurial Identity for women, leadership presence and confidence, negotiations, selling & social capital, financing, business, marketing and more!
