What we do:
Femna creates natural products based on medicinal herbs for women.
How we do it:
We work with leading experts to design, produce and sell products for women, to help them through the various womanly symptoms they experience throughout life. Our products focus on menstruation, PMS, fertility and menopause, with a pregnancy line in development. We sell through our own online store, via Amazon, and in various retail stores and pharmacies throughout Germany and Switzerland, for now. We also like to inject a little humour in everything we do, and along the way break some of the taboos that still exist about what it is to be female.
Why we do it:
Our goal is to make women’s lives happier and easier, naturally. We believe that ailments like menstrual cramps, PMS, cycle fluctuations and menopause discomfort need not be tackled with popping pills all the time. Femna is bringing the huge and growing market of herbal medicine out of the dark ages, and into the digital one. We want to become the leader in natural female health, and a trusted portal for women who want to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
What we are looking for:
At Femna we do different things differently. We’re spontaneous, flexible, and at the same time highly driven and passionate about what we do. We’re open for new ideas, and all opinions are listened-to and appreciated.

What you get from it:
We are here to support your learning and offer you invaluable real-life experience in a fast-growing and creative startup. We know that we can’t compete with the big companies on salary or lunch specials, but what we lack in big dollar packages we make up for in positive and supportive environment, constant mentoring and learning in business and personal development. We’re agile and proactive to jump onto new ideas and opportunities – we give you the freedom and support to create and develop.
Join us if you want more creative freedom, opportunity and responsibility than in any other role.

You’ve got the ability to make stuff happen and we’ll support you to do it. We’re a start-up – our resources are precious and we’re constantly asked to make magic with what we’ve got – we don’t complain, we just do it (with love).
