Come and be inspired by Cindy Eckert as she talks about her
successful journey in the pharmaceutical industry. Hear her story and
her indispensable insight as she has navigated a 24-year career in
healthcare.

Cindy Eckert is a self-made serial entrepreneur and
vocal advocate for women, Cindy defies convention. In her industry, in
her companies, in her outcomes. Her work today in The Pinkubator
continues to break barriers by investing in and mentoring other women to
get to her same outcomes. In only the last 10 years she has built and
sold two businesses for more than $1.5B. First Slate Pharmaceuticals,
which redefined long acting testosterone treatment for men then Sprout
Pharmaceuticals which broke through with the first ever FDA-approved
drug for low sexual desire in women — dubbed “female Viagra” by the
media. After selling the company for $1B in 2015, she successfully
fought to get the drug back and launch it on her own terms. Her results
have become a widely covered business success story featured in major
media outlets including Entrepreneur, Fortune, The New York Times,
Vanity Fair, Inc., The Tim Ferriss Show, Forbes, TEDX, MSNBC and Fast
Company.
