We know perimenopause can be lonely, which is why we're creating a private community for women to ask questions, share stories and meet others experiencing similar changes.


Coming soon: Join Elektra on an 8-Week journey with menopause experts and holistic health practitioners to learn more about hormones and how to develop a personal regiment to look and feel your best!



Elektra is founded by New York-based entrepreneur Alessandra Henderson. After a two year journey exploring her personal health (from egg freezing to hormone mishaps), Alessandra discovered how few reliable and accessible consumer resources there are to help women navigate their hormonal health. Never one to shy away from difficult conversations – especially of the taboo variety – she spoke with friends about the wild journey that is perimenopause and menopause. Turns out, 99.99% of woman she spoke to had no idea what to expect and were looking for trusted answers and experts! Alessandra left behind the safety of her venture capital job to found Elektra to eliminate the stigma and misinformation around perimenopause and menopause.


Alessandra Henderson has been working in technology for 8+ years as an operator, angel investor and educator. She started her career in technology as the sixth employee at Artsy. From there she received her MBA from MIT Sloan ('16) and continued on to serve as the Founding Executive Director of the MIT NYC Startup Studio and VP of Network at Human Ventures. Outside the office, Alessandra is passionate about art, taboos (read why she believes taboos are the next hotspot of tech innovation), and women's health.

"So many women I’ve talked to see menopause as an ending. But I’ve discovered this is your moment to reinvent yourself after years of focusing on the needs of everyone else. It’s your opportunity to get clear about what matters to you and then to pursue that with all of your energy, time and talent."
