Being together with like-minded people, all united in their passion to advance women’s healthcare is extremely inspiring. Every session gives us the opportunity to learn and share our knowledge. We create partnerships, we get priceless advice from our mentors, we brainstorm together. We were very happy to be accepted in the program, and time proved us we were right.
The program is an excellent opportunity to gain a better understanding of the rapidly expanding femtech sector. Unlike other programs, since it is directly oriented to our sector, the value of this group is very high.
