About the Speaker

Cindy Eckert is a self-made serial entrepreneur and vocal advocate for women, Cindy defies convention. In her industry, in her companies, in her outcomes. Her work today in The Pinkubator continues to break barriers by investing in and mentoring other women to get to the same outcomes.

In only the last 10 years she has built and sold two businesses for more than $1.5B. First Slate Pharmaceuticals, which redefined long-acting testosterone treatment for men then Sprout Pharmaceuticals which broke through with the first-ever FDA-approved drug for low sexual desire in women — dubbed “female Viagra” by the media.

After selling the company for $1B in 2015, she successfully fought to get the drug back and launch it on her own terms. Her results have become a widely covered business success story featured in major media outlets including Entrepreneur, Fortune, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Inc., The Tim Ferriss Show, Forbes, TEDX, MSNBC and Fast Company.
