Women of Wearables, healthtech and femtech virtual conference

Join WoW for an all-day conference about Investing and Fundraising in HealthTech and FemTech space with startups, investors and experts!

Investing and Fundraising in HealthTech and FemTech is a global virtual conference answering all your questions about fundraising and investing in this space. It's a global meetup of investors and founders sharing their insights, knowledge, best practices, and advice on how to raise money for FemTech and Health Tech businesses. We gathered founders, angels, VCs, startup accelerators, and experts from the field to educate, inform and share best practices on different ways to raise money to grow the businesses and share lessons learned along the way. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated digital health adoption by several years, which reflected in the surge of venture funding in digital health as well.

According to CB Insights’ State Of Healthcare Q1’21: Investment & Sector Trends To Watch report, global healthcare funding hit a new quarterly record in Q1 2021 with a total of $31.6B in equity funding. Startups offering on-demand healthcare services ($1.2B across 17 deals) and biopharma research and development catalysts ($1.1B across 13 deals) secured the most funding across 2020 and 2021, Rock Health report shows. Q1 2021 saw an uptick in investment activity for certain clinical issues. Among companies supporting a specific clinical condition, mental health companies garnered the most amount of funding in Q1 2021.

But, unlike the funding stats for digital health companies, the funding stats for female founders are not improving. In fact, venture funding for female founders has hit its lowest quarterly total in three years, according to PitchBook data. Crunchbase data shows that American startups founded solely by female founders raised only $3.2 billion in 2020, down a billion dollars from $4.2 billion in 2019. When it comes to women in VC, only 5.6% of US VC firms are women-led.

Join us for a whole day event to learn about Investing and Fundraising in HealthTech and FemTech space, meet successful founders and CEOs, find out who are the leading investors in this space, and connect with like-minded professionals from around the world!
