Speaker Bio

 
Kimberly Kovacs
CEO
MyJane

Kimberly Kovacs is a serial entrepreneur and investor across multiple sectors such as technology and life sciences and has a distinguished, results–driven, track record in executive leadership and finance. Kovacs has personally raised more than $100 million in venture dollars for companies she’s either founded or co-founded — resulting in many successful exits. In looking at investment opportunities in the cannabis space, it became apparent to Kovacs that there was a significant void in the women’s cannabis space, particularly as it related to women’s wellness and the various conditions that could be treated with cannabis. As a result she founded MyJane, a wellness technology platform that curates cannabis products based on the most common conditions women face such as; sleep, pain and anxiety. MyJane captures specific member information and, with its proprietary algorithm, matches each customer with a select number of products to try. And to add to the experience, members receive their curated experience box delivered to their home by a female brand ambassador who is educated on the products and provides on-site consultation. The mission of MyJane is to empower women to take control of their personal wellness, share their experiences with other women and create routines proven to work for them. Women helping women feel better! MyJane rejects the idea that one size fits all in health and wellness and that through education, accessibility and community we can provide women the foundation needed to make informed health and wellness choices that can include cannabis.

MyJane was acquired by Manifest 7 in January 2019 to broaden MyJane’s access to regulated distribution channels thus allowing members located in any part of California to receive curated cannabis experience boxes delivered to their homes.

Kovacs is a member of OCTANe and President of the Los Angeles Venture Association (LAVA). As the moderator of the first jointly hosted signature event ‘Women in Cannabis: Women Entrepreneurs Forging New Paths in The Cannabis Industry’ with Women in LAVA (The Los Angeles Venture Association) in conjunction with the newly defined Green LAVA, which is solely focused on cannabis, Kovacs is paving new pathways in the cannabis industry. She has been nominated for the Connected Women of Influence Gamechanger and the Orange County Business Journal Women in Business Awards. She is also an active angel investor, advisor and executive consultant for emerging companies. Passionate about the entrepreneurial ecosystem, Kovacs provides mentorship to students and startups in Los Angeles and Orange County.
