IMG_7174

Women’s health is often a hush hush subject – but it shouldn’t have to be. We should be able to talk openly about our problems and any solutions we’ve discovered for those problems.

Davielle Jackson decided it’s time for no more secrets! Through her startup, Femi Secrets, she wants to open up the conversation about women’s health. Femi Secrets’ product, Pretty Panty, is eco-friendly, biodegradable, and safe for all ages – helping women feel comfortable and confident. Davielle hopes to extend her brand to more products for women, and to establish a forum for women’s health discussions.

What’s next for Femi Secrets? The launch of a subscription-based model, manufacturing facility, and growth right here in Buffalo.

Learn more about Davielle and 2017 Winner Femi Secrets in today’s Founder Friday!

How did your startup, well, start up?

We started up when one of my childhood friends told me she had a problem and no product on the market could solve it! We went to work on helping her.

What do you do? Your startup?

Femi Secrets is a feminine care company providing healthy, eco-friendly products and ultimate confidence to women.

When was the ‘aha’ moment for your startup when you realized this could actually work?

When I went to Walmart stores and spoke to the managers, and everyone wanted it in their store as soon as possible.

What has been the biggest accomplishment for your startup to-date?

The biggest accomplishment is being able to help other women and young ladies who suffer from the same condition my friend did.

Goals for the next year? Three years?

Scale up to $20M in revenue, build our own manufacturing facility, and captivate the international market.

Why Buffalo?

Buffalo is focused on economic stimulation and driving businesses. We have seen the growth in this city and want to be a part of it.

How do you do it? What drives you?

We want all women to have access to healthy feminine care products. Women empowerment is our life!

What advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs?

Work within your passion – once you work with the things you love and believe in, there is absolutely no stopping you.

Owner of Femi Featured in Buffalo Business First Article

Femi is one of the few selected prestige companies set to partner with the Buffalo Billions organization in order to stimulate the North New York economy.

Recently they chose to interview Davielle Jackson as she is poised to make a huge splash in the eco system.

Exerts from the Buffalo Business First Articles read as thus;

Jackson has plenty on her plate. Femi Secrets is doing a makeover of its website – http://www.femisecrets.com – to be more of a sales-based platform. It is in the process of hiring a chief operating officer and a digital marketing employee, both of whom will work from Buffalo. And as manufacturing costs rise in China, the company is looking for a new overseas production partner while it also stands up its own manufacturing operation in Buffalo.

As if that’s not enough, Femi Secrets is currently engaged with different investors in an active fundraising round, and Jackson is busy designing the next generation of Femi Secrets products.

 

When asked how is she handling everything on her plate, as a young business owner she stated,

“This is what we do,” she said. “We fight hard, we break records and we get it done.”

With her history of entering Walmart at 26 in a 6 month time Frame and recently winning one of the largest business competitions in the world, there is no doubt she is a fighter and and will be a trailblazing leader in the Buffalo Billion sector.
