Investors are starting to recognize 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 totaled $334 million. In 2017, VC investors participated in 49 deals in the FemTech space, totaling $354 million.
Join us on Thursday, Jun 25, 2020, to hear and learn from some of the most inspiring founders, innovators, investors and influencers in FemTech, on a wide range of topics, including fertility, sexual health, designing products for modern women, the gender gap in medical research and more.
The FemTech industry is booming, and we’re excited to see what’s to come!
