A serial entrepreneur, Cindy has started and sold two Raleigh based pharmaceutical companies. Most recently she co-founded and was CEO of Sprout Pharmaceuticals which broke through with the first ever FDA approved drug for low sexual desire in women. Following that approval, she sold the company for $1B upfront + future milestones to Valeant pharmaceuticals. Today through her new company, The Pink Ceiling, Cindy advises and invests in other businesses bringing focus or breaking through on women's issues. RSVP
