This week on The Exit: When he was in college, Will Sacks and a bunch of friends raised enough money to turn their dream of a solar powered race car into a reality. The car raced from Chicago to LA, and that’s when Will realized his call was to create things. Out of college, he founded a lighting company, but that didn’t really take off. A few years later, Will and his former partner were debating birth control pills, vasectomies and other ways to not fall pregnant. That’s when they came up with the idea to create a platform to help women understand their bodies, tracking their cycles and analyzing their fertility data. That’s when Kindara came to life. The company raised money in multiple ways, including a $3M seed funding round that helped build a hardware device, a thermometer to track fertility. Listen to hear how the exit happened in 2018, how Will experienced burnout and had to step down as a CEO, and how Kindara revolutionized women’s reproductive health.
Will Sacks founded Fulcrum Venture Accelerator in 2019 with the mission to empower socially-minded entrepreneurs and help them succeed at raising capital.
Will once created a solar powered race car that he raced from Chicago to Los Angeles and most recently founded Kindara with the mission to empower women everywhere through body literacy. Kindara raised around $9M in angel and venture funding and was acquired in 2018. He and the Fulcrum Venture Accelerator team are based in Boulder CO, and Nashville TN, USA.
