Ep. 7: Why do we need a female friendly condom?
Meet Farah Kabir, co-founder of HANX, who tackles the taboo around female contraception & women’s intimate sexual health.
A keen interest in investment banking saw her begin her career at Goldman Sachs, where she honed her business acumen in technology finance before setting her sights on asset management.
Farah took the leap and co-founded HANX in 2017, spurred on by the desire to smash taboos around sex, pleasure and intimate health. An intimate wellness brand specialising in gynae-backed condoms and lubricant, and more recently, vaginal health treatments, HANX has created a revolution in the condom industry which has historically been a male-focussed business.
Winner of London Asian Business Award’s Entrepreneur of the Year 2018, Farah continues to make waves with raises of £1million and counting under her belt. HANX’s expanded product line of treatments for vaginal health issues secures its place within the lucrative feminine hygiene market as Farah continues to champion women’s health while challenging the stigma around intimate and in particular, vaginal wellness.
In this episode, Sangeeta & Farah talk about why women taking charge of their own contraception and pleasure is important.
