Meet Kimba Williams, MBA, and Dr. Barbara McLaren, a Board-Certified OB/GYN, the founders of Kushae, a feminine hygiene product company headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Back in August, they won first place in the TiE ACCESS startup investment pitch, an annual event committed to investing over $400,000 into startups.

Kushae is the first and only OB/GYN researched and developed full-suite of non-toxic feminine hygiene products for women at every age and stage of life. It is also the second Black woman-founded feminine hygiene company to be sold in a major retailer since its partnership began with Whole Foods Market in 2020.

The two founders are both of Caribbean descent; Kimba is a descendant of Jamaica and Dr. Barb is a descendant of Haiti.
