About this Event

FemTech: The time is now

Long gone are the days when we used to write our period days in the notebook. Nowadays, everybody has an app to do so. An app to track your period, an app to track your steps, an app to track your nutrition...Technology gives us the power to know more about our bodies and health, especially about women’s health we were taught not to talk about.

Period. Fertility. Pregnancy. Miscarriages. Incontinence. Postpartum depression. Menopause.

The time is now - to open a conversation, to start talking about women’s health and learn how FemTech can help us get healthier and happier.

Investors and tech ecosystem have also started recognising the importance of this industry, which is estimated to be worth $50 billion by 2025, according to Frost & Sullivan. Women in the workforce spend 29% more per capita on healthcare than their male peers and they’re 75% more likely to use digital tools to track their health.

Join us for an evening of learning, sharing and connecting, learn more about the digital revolution in women’s health space and meet disruptors in this industry who are giving women the power to do so with their innovative products. Ask questions, share knowledge. We look forward to meeting you all!
