Join us on Thursday, January 19th at 4pm GMT for a discussion on FemTech. The term “FemTech” was first coined in 2016 by entrepreneur Ida Tin. In the course of just a few years, it has grown to encompass a range of technology-enabled, consumer-centric products and solutions. As opportunities in women’s health accelerate, FemTech is helping to match capital and talent to unmet needs—with promising early results. It provides a wide range of solutions to improve healthcare for women across a number of female-specific conditions, including maternal health, menstrual health, pelvic and sexual health, fertility, menopause, and contraception, as well as a number of general health conditions that affect women disproportionately or differently (such as osteoporosis or cardiovascular disease).
We will host a panel of three FemTech experts that each bring a fresh perspective on the trajectory of the field and the latest developments regarding innovation, investment, equality, impact, and market opportunity.
Founders & Funders is a community and digital event series that brings notable Oxford & Harvard alumni, founders, and funders in conversation with researchers and executive students at the coalface of science and business. Founders & Funders: Overview | LinkedIn
- – Keynote events: The keynotes are science business founders and funders, some Oxford-based and others in Boston, many alumni, but mostly drawn in from the wider ecosystem, such as leading experts and alumni based in Silicon Valley, and beyond.
- – A unique community and ecosystem network: An integrated access point for science-entrepreneurship, addressing venture building, funding, mentorship, as well as academia-industry collaboration. The community facilitates peer-to-peer knowledge exchanges between entrepreneurial peers that are starting or have started a (science-)venture, notable alumni, and relevant ecosystem stakeholders.
