Using tampons for STI diagnosis and pain period treatment.

Valentina is founder and CEO of Daye. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Business, Economics and Law, and a Master of International and Trade Law from the University of Buckingham, and she is currently working toward her Master of Public Health at Imperial College London. Prior to founding Daye, Valentina managed the artificial intelligence and machine learning portfolio at the Founders Factory, a start-up accelerator in London, and was a Venture Associate at the global investment company Techstars.

In 2018, after about 180 pitches to investors, Valentina raised £4 million in seed funding and Daye could start on its mission to remove the pain, shame and time wasted by women who are seeking relief from period pain. In 2020, Daye launched its first consumer product: a pain-relieving tampon to help around 90% of women who experience period pain. In 2023, Valentina raised another £10 million in series A funding for Daye. And Daye is now introducing its Diagnostic Tampon, aimed at the detection of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
