Episode 201 talks about how to invest in a Latina-owned startup, featuring Rebecca Alvarez Story of Bloomi. Listen now!
Rebecca Alvarez Story, CEO of Bloomi, believes the key to unlocking satisfying intimacy starts with unlearning bad sex ed. As a nationally sought-after sexologist and entrepreneur, she is helping to normalize sexual wellness by creating accessible, clean intimacy products and inclusive content with Bloomi. Rebecca is one of the few Latinas in the US to raise over $1M in venture capital and in 2022, Bloomi became the first Latina-led brand to launch in the sexual wellness aisle in over 1200 Target stores nationwide.
As a mom of two daughters, Rebecca also prioritizes family-time and believes it is critical for families to be able to have open conversations about the body. A pioneer in the space, Rebecca graduated from UC Berkeley with a major in sexual wellness that she created and holds a Master’s in Sexuality Studies.
Rebecca has been featured and contributes to publications including Forbes, Well+Good, Parents Latina, Byrdie, Refinery29, Elite Daily, BeLatina, Mitú and more. She has been named a Changemaker by Well+Good and Forbes’ Next 1000. As a proud daughter of Latinx immigrants, Rebecca also focuses on diversity initiatives that elevate other BIPOC in entrepreneurship.
