The State of the Art of Femtech by Experts & Tech4Eva Founders
Women’s health and wellbeing deserves more attention and investment: Of the nearly $42 billion the National Institutes of Health (NIH) spends in the US on medical research each year, only approximately $5 billion is directed specifically at women’s health.
Furthermore, even though the market opportunity for the Femtech sector is expected to reach $1+ Trillion by 2027 (Crunchbase/Femtech Focus), it still only receives 2.3% of venture investments, undercutting the opportunities for innovative tech solutions reaching the market.
The lack of awareness, research, investment and support in the development of disruptive solutions for women’s health undermines effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment for women, and overall wellbeing and productivity of the society.
This is why on December 7th, the first conference of Tech4Eva - the Swiss Femtech conference, was organized in Lausanne at SwissTech Convention Center to accelerate the Femtech development in Switzerland and across the world. The conference brought together 250+ stakeholders, entrepreneurs, innovators, academic researchers, as well as ecosystem builders to discuss the current and the future of technologies for women’s health.
Audrey Tsang, the keynote speaker who is the CO-CEO, of CLUE by Biowink which is credited as having coined the term “Femtech”, shared the inspiring journey of the company established in Germany in 2013. CLUE has developed a period tracking app to empower women and people with cycles with the science, data and technology needed to make informed choices about their lives.
