Femtech Lab Applications opened!

FemTech Lab announced the launch of its new hybrid startup accelerator program focusing on FemTech companies.

This program will combine the virtual FemTech Lab program, launched in 2020, with a new in-person element.

FemTech Lab’s accelerator welcomes around ten early-stage companies for three months twice a year. Applications for the Spring 2022 Cohort are now open online until January 15th.

Speaking about the announcement, FemTech Lab’s Co-founders Karina Vazirova and Katia Lang said, “FemTech is right at the centre of these two major trends, and the sector is growing, defining itself, expanding well beyond reproductive health, touching all areas of women’s lives.”

“FemTech is going to be the new normal for any innovation in health and consumer product design in the near future.”

Based in London, the 12-week accelerator program will guide FemTech entrepreneurs and start-up founders from across the world through seven different FemTech business categories over the course of three months, culminating in a Demo Day on 01 December. The unique program built for startups operating in the women’s health and wellbeing space involves over 50 workshops with 40 expert advisors across three main sprints: Product, Go-To-Market, and Fundraising – all with a FemTech-specific angle.

Following the success of the Spring 2021 Cohort which saw 20% of startups being overfunded, applications for Spring 2022 have opened. The previous cohort’s successes were not isolated to funding, as they have triumphed with digital propositions to major national deals, corporate sponsorships and grants, as well as nominating major FemTech leaders to their board of directors.

Applications for FemTech Lab’s Accelerator are now open until January 15th. All FemTech companies are welcome to apply. Selected startups will join FemTech Lab on 1st February for three months.
