Life Sciences Special Interest Group (LSIG) I The Future of FemTech

Athena invites you to The Future of FemTech on October 24 from 5:30 - 8:00 pm located at our event sponsors JLABS. This program delivers a panel discussion highlighting professionals in the industry who are creating the future of Women's Health and Wellness solutions. Femtech, defined as any software, diagnostics, products, and services that leverage technology to improve women’s health, has attracted at least $241 million in VC funding in 2019 alone, according to a recent TechCrunch article. As we see the rise of a female-driven economy, we also see increased demand and need for more health solutions that built and designed by women, for women.
