Ever wondered how Femtech Insider came to be? You’re in luck as our founder Kathrin Folkendt recently told the whole story on UK Health Radio’s Health Tech Hour, a weekly interview series hosted by PocDoc CEO Steve Roest. Kathrin openly shares how her own struggles with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) led to the start of Femtech Insider and subsequently the founding of PERLA Health, a digital health startup innovating to improve care for women with PCOS.
What is femtech anyways? What’s the role of men in women’s health innovation? What’s the current state of PCOS care and how can it be improved? Is it hard to build a business in times of COVID-19 and why is it so important to manage your own mental health as a founder? During the hour-long conversation Kathrin and Steve touched on many topics and shared some insights into their journeys and challenges as founders in digital health. So if you’re interested in any of the above, make sure you tune in and we hope you enjoy this deep-dive into women’s health innovation and patient entrepreneurship as much as we have!
