Jenny Saft is CEO and co-founder at Apryl: a Berlin-based fertility benefits platform helping companies across Europe offer staff access to inclusive fertility and family-forming services - everything from egg freezing through to adoption and IVF. According to the World Health Organization, 15% of all reproductive aged couples worldwide are affected by infertility and in many countries additional barriers exist for single women, same-sex couples, or even individuals who are deemed to live in the wrong postal code zone.
In this episode, we discussed the following:
- The motivation for founding Apryl and insights into her startup story.
- Why being on a mission to democratize fertility solutions is by lowering existing barriers is so important no matter the gender, sexual orientation, relationship status, or financial means.
- How Apryl partners with companies to offer fertility support services as an employee benefit.
- The benefit to companies and why supporting parenthood rights is the right thing to do.
Jenny was inspired to start Apryl when her own experience of freezing her eggs fell short. In addition to founding Apryl, Jenny is an Angel investor, investing in early-stage startups through the Atomico Angel Programme. Prior to starting Apryl, Jenny worked in project management and business development at several big companies, including Fyber in San Francisco and Dutch fintech Adyen.
