We accelerate women's health innovations
A global FemTech community and a 9 month equity free FemTech start-up acceleration program for companies developing innovative solutions to improve technologies relating to women’s health with international reach.
Being accepted into the Tech4Eva program was the best thing that I ever experienced after participating in a few accelerator programs. Tech4Eva understands the FemTech space, the problems we have as Founders are trying to solve, and the challenges startups may encounter on that journey to saving the world. Being in the program is like having a big sister who guides and advises you, which is important when one embarks on this journey. I also got to learn a lot from fellow Founders and it was heartening to learn that the challenges we encounter are not just local but worldwide.
Tech4Eva is the unique FemTech accelerator in Switzerland! The topic of women's health has been neglected for years, and there are also numerous blind spots in gynaecology and obstetrics, which many women are unfortunately not aware of. We want to change that and Tech4Eva can help us so that more know about it and, above all, get faster access to this innovative technology!

Pregnancy & post-partum
