An Introduction to Femtech
Jacqueline Kressner is a FemTech consultant, Women of Wearables Ambassador of the Philippines and co-founder of a Femtech start-up called FemCy. She will be heading this year’s 2020! Quarterly virtual meet-up with a Master Class dedicated to the Topic: An Introduction to FemTech.
FemTech, ‘the buzz word turned global industry term’, has become an established part of the global start-up scene, and investors are duly taking notice! With an expected USD50mn market cap by 2025 and a combined investment of over USD1bn since 2014, 100s of established FemTech start-ups and dedicated Accelerator & Investment Fund portfolios are well-positioned to take advantage of this growth within women’s sexual wellness & reproductive healthcare space.
Due to our combined goal of growing the FemTech community in Asia, we want to give light to the key stakeholders within the space and discuss how, as an individual, you can lend your skills to building the next generation FemTech company to help revolutionise women’s health!
We will revisit the topic of what is FemTech and who are the key stakeholders within the space, (including Investors, Start-ups and established companies looking to join FemTech). We will also be discussing how as community members you can become actively involved within the industry, what skills are required to work in FemTech and how you can become part of a global movement to empower women at every stage of their lives!
