The Future is FemTech
November 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm CET
Fem Tech is an emerging tech industry on the rise. It takes digital health and targets the female market. The market is saturated with products for men yet 50% of the world’s population are women. It is only recently that we have seen the rise of FemTech products receiving funding and are now coming out onto the market. From fertility apps, pregnancy tracking and period tracking apps, better breastfeeding devices to vibrators and pelvic floor devices! The list is endless!
Is it the lack of funding? Is it the tech sector that is dominated by male venture capitalists that intimidates a woman to pitch about an uncomfortable topic that male VCs know nothing about or care to know about?
Let’s bring this uncomfortable topic to light! Leave your inhibitions at the door and join Blooms – London’s first business club for female founders and entrepreneurs, for an inspirational and educational evening.
