FemTech Forum
Women of Wearables is hosting the 1st global, virtual conference on FemTech on June 25th. The one-day forum, which will be held on Zoom, will address topics like fertility, sexual wellness, data privacy, the gender gap in medical research and more.

Investors are starting to recognise the value of this industry, which is estimated to be worth $50 billion by 2025, according to Frost & Sullivan.

Women in the workforce spend 29% more per capita on healthcare than their male peers and they’re 75% more likely to use digital tools to track their health. A decade ago, just $23 million worth of venture capital was invested in the global FemTech industry,according to PitchBook data.

That figure grew at a modest pace until 2015, when there was a spike in funding that totalled $334 million. In 2017, VC investors participated in 49 deals in the FemTech space, totalling $354 million.

Notable FemTech deals in the past year include Maven Clinic’s $45 million Series C, Modern Fertility’s $15 million Series A, Peanut’s $12 million Series A, Inne’s $8.7 million Series A and Daye’s $5.5 million seed round.

Step forward the FemTech Forum, a celebration of innovation in women’s health, spotlighting tech-powered solutions and products that are disrupting the market and changing our everyday lives for the better.

Organised by Marija Butkovic, Founder and CEO, Women of Wearables, Anja Streicher, Chief Marketing Officer, Women of Wearables and Bérénice Magistretti, FemTech Journalist and Angel Investor, the A-list panel of speakers includes:

Eirini Rapti, Founder and CEO of Inne; Sophia Bendz, Partner at Atomico; Louise Samet, Partner at Blossom Capital; Michelle Kennedy, Founder and CEO of Peanut; Valentina Milanova, Founder and CEO of Daye; Elina Berglund Scherwitzl, Co-Founder and CEO of Natural Cycles; Lea von Bidder, Co-Founder and CEO of Ava; Billie Quinlan, Founder and CEO of Ferly; Katherine Ryder, Founder and CEO of Maven Clinic; Afton Vechery, Co-Founder and CEO of Modern Fertility and Kat Mañalac, Partner at Y Combinator.
