Ida Tin (Clue)

After leading motorcycle tours around the world for five years, lifelong entrepreneur Ida Tin launched Clue, a period tracking and fertility app, in 2013. Clue currently has more than four million active users in over 190 countries, and is one of the most popular apps in the “Health & Fitness” category in the United States, Germany, France and many other countries. Clue’s mission is to empower women globally and allow them to take better control of their lives. They do so by fighting to eliminate the existing social stigma around women’s periods and reflecting on a vital part of our lives, “without menstruation there would be no humans on this planet”, as Ida so accurately put it. She is convinced that technology will profoundly change the future of family planning and female health tracking. Not only Ida, but Clue’s investors too – the Berlin-based company has recently seen a $7 million Series A round, with investment from New York’s Union Square Ventures and London-based Series A fund Mosaic Ventures. By 2019 Clue has raised $29.7M in total.
