Leisa: Hello, I’m Leisa Holland-Nelson and welcome to another edition of Women Mean Business where we’re going to take you up close and personal with extraordinary women doing extraordinary things. My guest today is Ursula Hessenflow, the Co-founder and CEO of myLABbox, where safe is sexy. Welcome to Women Mean Business Ursula.
Ursula: Thank you for inviting me Leisa.
Leisa: I’m so glad you’re here; I want you to tell us about myLABbox.
Ursula: Okay, sure. So myLABbox is the first online service that actually allows you to test for STDs and related conditions from the comfort and privacy of home.
Leisa: And why would I want to do that?
Ursula: What we found as marketers is that there was a huge breakdown with people in terms of their reluctance to go into a lab or to have an awkward conversation with their doctor so what the sell is it’s something that comes in a discreet package, it shows up at your doorstep, you can do it in 5 minutes at home and still get the same quality of diagnostic results from our lab.
Leisa: And then what if I need medication? Will I be able to get that?
Ursula: Yep, so we have a physician network that we work with that will take this full cycle. So if you need treatment, if you need a consultation there is a doctor that’s available and they can do it all remotely via telemedicine.
Leisa: So how do I find you? Are you online?
Ursula: So it’s myLABbox.com; so we sell through myLABbox.com, we sell through Amazon and some strategic partnerships. So we working on dating site integrations, working with health organizations.
Leisa: How long have you been in this business?
Ursula: So we launched in December, December of last year.
Leisa: That’s very exciting. Thank you for being with us today.
Ursula: Thank you.
