Every Thursday we send out a curated newsletter on “all things femtech and women’s health innovation”. This is the latest edition. If you’re interested in subscribing, you can do so at the bottom of this page.

“Venture capital is such a powerful engine of innovation. And we’re finally harnessing it for women’s health. Given the increasingly regressive policies of government, private sector innovation will be essential to ensure a brighter future for women’s health.” Elizabeth Bailey, Managing Director of RH Capital.
