Lack of Awareness

Society

Many find it hard to conceive what are women’s health issues and what technologies are needed. This is likely due to the under communicated and misunderstood needs of women.

Investors

Femtech startup successes have also gone under recognized. Thus there is a lack of excitement from the investment community to assign capital to this market.

Founders

Internal lack of transparency on what is being worked on has lead to over 35 organic tampon companies. Reinvention of the same products.

The femtech industry needs a champion to discuss women’s natural biological processes, expose the extent to which women are suffering and dying due to lack of innovation, and promote the technologies that are improving their lives.

The femtech industry lacks sufficient resources to thrive and is under recognized in the tech community. Femtech Focus is here to change that.

Lack of Resources

Limited Resources

There are very few Femtech incubators, accelerators, venture funds, media outlets, and conferences. The ones that do exist can be found on our resources tab,

Isolated Resources

The resources that exist are quite siloed and hard to find. Many femtech founders must stumble upon them.

Without femtech specific programs and funds, femtech startups are receiving capital and mentoring from individuals that may not be capable of providing the specific advice and connections to make femtech startups successful.
