ChickRx Wins New Media Women Entrepreneur Award
Monday, November 15, 2010
Stacey Borden and Meghan Muntean, who earlier this year launched ChickRx, a witty health website for 20-something women, were honored with J-Lab’s New Media Women Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
In addition to their $10,000 start-up award, Borden and Muntean, both invested personal savings into ChickRx to get the project off the ground. They began laying the groundwork for the company while Borden was an MBA student at Harvard Business School and Muntean was an Assistant Vice President at a Wall Street investment bank. Now supported with $400,000 from an angel investor, the website provides well-researched health news to women in a humorous, relatable way.
