In this episode, Suneera welcomes Melissa Bentivoglio, CEO, and co-founder of Frame. Melissa shares her entrepreneurial journey and how she developed the idea for the first at-home, digitally-connected Pilates Reformer. She candidly shares some of the “myths” of being a founder, the creative and funding process in creating Frame, and the obstacles she faced as an aspiring female CEO.
Melissa is a classically trained ballet dancer and a renowned Pilates and fitness instructor. She credits her dedication to Pilates as having changed her life after years of elite-level performance.
