The Women's Investor Network (WIN), a program of Rockies Venture Club, so-hosts a monthly event with Coolest Women We Know (CWWK). This month's entrepreneur is Jaclyn Fu (right in photo below), Co-Founder and CEO of Pepper, an e-commerce company making better fitting bras for small-chested women.  Jaclyn was inspired by her personal challenges - shopping at teens departments for bras as an adult.  Without fashion or marketing experience, Jaclyn and her co-founder, Lia, produced a prototype and launched on Kickstarter raising 470% of their funding goal in 13 days.  Read the article in Denver Business News, 9.25.17.


Jaclyn's Challenge - Investment and Market Approach

After the successful Kickstarter campaign, Pepper continues to receive pre-orders daily. Her challenge now is to answer 1) What are the biggest risks that investors see in our business that we should prioritize as milestones with the money we have left and 2) What metrics should we track while validating our customer acquisition strategy?
