When Michelle Kennedy was expecting her first child, she couldn’t find the support she needed via online searches and Facebook groups. So she created Peanut, a social network now boasting 2.5 million users and a nearly triple growth in daily active users over the last year, which offers a space for women to learn from one another. First intended for expecting mothers like Kennedy, Peanut now has groups catering to women across all life stages—including, most recently, those going through menopause. “Ultimately, I want three women all in the same family, each in a different generation, to use Peanut and have a reason to be there,” says the CEO.
