Event description

Description

FemTech pitch night gathers all the key players in the startup ecosystem to come together for a night of showcasing innovative female health focused companies to an audience of investors, media, and consumers.

Whether you are presenting your company to the audience or joining in to network with other people interested in creating better products and services for female health, FemTech Pitch night offers a unique opportunity to connect around innovation in an industry that has been stagnant for hundreds of years.

If you're keenly aware of the lack of attention paid to women's health and wellness and the huge opportunity in the market, then FemTech Pitch Night is the perfect chance to become a part of a movement and shape the future of the FemTech category.

Female health focused startups can apply to pitch here (deadline is extended until Wednesday the 20th): https://femtechcollective.com/apply-to-pitch

Register to join us at One Piece in San Francisco from 6pm-9pm on June 28th
