Co-founder & CEO, My Normative
Listen to the recording below.
The world’s first health tracking app with a female-focused lens.
It helps you track and understand how your hormones impact your activity levels, sleep quality, and more — beyond reproductive health.
It all started with the “52 Project” — Danika and her co-founder, Renee, reviewed an app each week for 52 weeks.
They discovered that there was nothing for women and their unique needs.
Knowing that the impact of female physiology on health is largely ignored or dismissed, they developed My Normative.
Danika and Renee want to leverage this proprietary app and data to develop tools and algorithms to help health innovators incorporate women into clinical trials.
“Renee and I specialized in women’s health in grad school. We couldn’t find any data sets that actually measured female persons. It didn’t exist.”
My Normative App took 8 months to build
It was launched on March 8, 2021, National Women’s Day
Since launching, they have had 400+ users in 5 months-time
