MONTREAL, Quebec—Veronique Verreault, the CEO of Miss VV's Mystery and creator of the Miss On The Go app-powered Kegel vibrator, has been inducted into the Women of Sex Tech group of pleasure industry professionals.
“I’m all about women's empowerment, and we know how tough it is in the sex tech business,” said Verreault. “Even though my family and close entourage supports me, no one would understand me better than the women hustling out there in the same field.”
Verreault was inspired to join WoST by the group's networking opportunities and mission to help back entrepreneurial women looking to make moves in the male-dominated sex tech space.
“I heard about the group from [WoST member] Virginia Cerrone, CEO of PureEros. We were talking about what we go through as female pleasure business owners, and she strongly suggested I join the group to help others and get support as well; to exchange on our projects and feel less lonely,” said Verreault.
Since her induction last month, Verreault was asked to speak at a Festivulve conference, a French-language event celebrating women and body positivity and diversity. Titled “Sex Tech: The Cherry on Top of Feminism,” this leg of Festivulve's conference took place in Verreault's native Montreal, where she was personally asked to speak by event organizer Mel Goyer.
“For most of the attendees, sex tech was something vague and they had no clue how far this industry can go and how much of a positive difference it can bring for all of us,” said Verreault. “I talked about the Women of Sex Tech and the overall impact of technology on the sexual wellness field. The crowd was also very impressed with the recent fund raising efforts of WoST members Cindy Gallop and Bryony Cole for their Sex Hackathon.”
For the remainder of 2018, Verreault will be working on growing her business with Miss On The Go, her debut product that combines a unique Kegel ball vibrator with a social, Tinder-esque dating app, and seeking new investors to back production on new sex tech toys for her company, Miss VV's Mystery.
“Veronique is a tenacious entrepreneur and dedicated community builder who is strengthening the WoST network from Montreal and wherever she goes,” said fellow WoST member and Future of Sex founder Bryony Cole. “Miss On The Go combines women's pleasure and health and is part of the new wave of sex tech empowering women.”
“I’m really glad to be part of the Women of Sex Tech movement and make a difference by spreading the word and excitement around it,” said Verreault. “My aim is to improve women’s lives and empower them through my brand message: Confidence is Sexy.”
According to the company's website, Women of Sex Tech was founded in 2015 by pleasure industry leaders Polly Rodriguez and Lidia Bonilla in an effort to change the way the world views human sexuality and create a community that fosters femme identifying entrepreneurship. The collective group represents business owners, journalists, artists and creators, and educators and engineers in more than six cities globally.
