The Fertility Planit Mission
Fertility Planit (FP) is the social network for people worldwide wanting to create a family and for all services that support them.
We connect Users with a like-minded, global community – providing access to friends, resources, reviews and deals -- to help people feel informed and inspired. We are the leading, consumer-oriented brand for family building, known for supporting a healthy mind-body-spirit, and for helping people feel good about themselves as they embrace the process of building a family.
Users sign up with a free personal or business profile -- and search by global location for friends, resources, reviews and deals. We welcome people, products and services from across the fertility, health and wellness spectrum to make themselves known to our personal users who are seeking all manner of support to build a family.
Fertility Planit is currently in beta with a live prototype. Our public launch will happen at our first annual consumer convention in April 2012 in Los Angeles -- tentatively titled the Fertility Planit Health & Wellness Show. To support the launch convention we'll need to build pages that explain all of the relevant information related to the show -- as well as make it possible to purchase ticket, exhibitor and sponsor packages.
We'll also want to expand our Shopping and Connect sections to allow for more features -- as well as offer multimedia content from the Show.
Our team includes Karin Thayer as Founder/CEO; a team of Astia Advisors (see www.astia.org) featuring our CFO Linda Greub; legal counsel from Mavis Yee at Nixon/Peabody in Palo Alto; accounting expertise from Paul Fong at BPM in San Francisco; web development from Palo Alto-based engineer Carmel Avnon.
Life at Fertility Planit
At the moment we're in early stage beta and are securing our Seed round. We'll be working independently and coming together as a team occasionally for bi-monthly meet-ups. While we're based in San Francisco and the SF Bay Area, we're happy to welcome good people on board who are located in other parts of the USA.
