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

Athena invites you to The Future of FemTech on October 24 from 5:30 - 8:00pm hosted and sponsored by JLABS. This exciting program discussion will highlight entrepreneurs 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, attracted $241 million in VC funding in 2019, according to TechCrunch. As we see the rise of a female-driven economy, we also see increased demand and need for more health solutions that are built and designed by women, for women. For those interested in learning how you can get involved in this emerging sector, you won’t want to miss this timely program.
