FemTech Focus’ Top 2021 Moments

A lot happens within a year; 2021 proved no different for FemTech Focus. 365 days of campaigns launched, businesses empowered, podcasts recorded with industry leaders, master class events hosted, partnership projects, new hires, and the list goes on. 

We want to acknowledge our team’s unwavering dedication, the international support of FemTech companies, partnerships with start-up accelerators, and charitable sponsors. Here are our top 10 moments from this past year, and, what’s to come in 2022.

  1. Co-released FemTech Landscape 2021 with Coyote Ventures
