Femtech or “technology, services, and products that are designed to improve women’s health and wellness” as our founder Dr. Brittany Barreto defined it in the FemTech Focus podcast is a fast-growing industry. The femtech market value will cross $48.5 million in the next five years. The industry is growing from female-prevalent verticals such as fertility, feminine hygiene, maternal health, and menopause to a broader women’s health scope covering mental health and oncology.
Restrictions on holding in-person events do not hinder femtech founders and supporters from coming together to discuss the current state of the industry, issues we are facing, and what the future holds for the field of women’s health and health tech.
Here are two programs you should not miss out on this year.
Date: September 14 to 15 and 21 to 22, 2020
Registration Fee: $299 to $1099 depending on industry and time of registration
The Women’s Health Innovation Summit is one of the biggest online gatherings of women health-focused companies, medical practitioners, funding organizations, and many more. The list of panelists alone includes big names in the femtech industry, multi-million-dollar health and wellness companies, and medical institutions.
Attend the summit to connect with potential partners and investors. One of the summit’s main goals is to solidify the collaboration among women’s health stakeholders, and the organizers to build relationships. The conference schedule includes networking sessions and virtual happy hours to catch-up with fellow attendees.
Also, there is an opportunity to present your groundbreaking innovation to the entire summit by applying to the Women’s Health Innovation Summit Spotlight. If you want to raise awareness of your products or services, check out the Spotlight event.
