Elina Berglund Scherwitzl

CTO & founder, Natural Cycles


Elina Berglund is the CTO and co-founder of Natural Cycles – the world’s first, and only, app to be certified as a contraception. She was part of the team that discovered the Higgs boson at the CERN, which led to the Nobel Prize in physics in 2013. Following this success, Elina was looking for an effective natural contraceptive and applied her skills from particle physics to create an algorithm that could accurately pinpoint when a woman is fertile. Elina’s mission is to pioneer women’s health with research and passion – by empowering every woman with the knowledge she needs to be in charge of her health.
