Forté Sponsor Event

The growing number of women in the workforce and in leadership roles, paired up with the increased buying power of women is slowly but surely transforming the business world in many aspects: Demands for better maternity policies, innovative products to prevent and improve women's health issues, and better fertility and pregnancy solutions are top priorities for the modern woman.

Female founders and top executives are leading the rise of a new Innovation sector that is increasingly gaining momentum: Femtech. With an estimated market size of 50B by 2025, Femtech largely encompasses any digital or hardware health tool or service focused on improving one of many aspects of women's health, including wearables, internet-connected medical devices, mobile apps, and hygiene products, among other related products and services. The broader definition of the term includes maternal and infant health, family care, and personalized holistic solutions.

At this event, we will hear directly from successful female entrepreneurs and executives in the Femtech Space. They will discuss the impact of Femtech on Healthcare, Business and the Wellness Industry, and why we need specific solutions tailored to the needs of women.
