Recommended Event: 17/06/2021: Investing and Fundraising in HealthTech and FemTech - virtual conference | Women of Wearables Global

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!

International Women's Day, Forward Ladies event featured

30/03/2021: In Conversation With Lara Morgan - International Women's Day Special | Forward Ladies

International Women's Day, Forward Ladies event

Griselda Togobo from FL will sit down with an award-winning business leader Lara Morgan to discuss her life and business post the pandemic.

The pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on women. Will the impact bring lasting positive change to women's businesses and careers? The rise of remote working flexible working offers some hope for but what will the future of work look like for women?

Every year on March 8th, millions of women, men, and companies worldwide collectively celebrate women’s achievement whilst also reminding ourselves to keep working towards equality because, sadly, the world remains unjust for women.

Here at FL, it is International Women Day every day as we work all year round to support women’s causes.

So we are excited to continue sharing the stories, achievements and contributions of brilliant women, the trailblazers, the difficult ones, the non-conformists because these stories will help us change the narratives that fuel injustice towards women.

The theme for this year’s, International Women’s Day, is Choose to Challenge.

From our experience working with thousands of women, speaking up, using your voice, having choice and using that choice to challenge the status quo, can be a daunting ask for many women – young or old.

This is why communities like ours play a vital role in giving women the confidence and tools needed to seize opportunities to challenge the status quo.

Join us to inspire personal change, by accessing the connections, community and content that will help you keep breaking through your personal barriers.

Together, we will keep pushing the boundaries, challenging the status quo and supporting other women as we achieve our own goals.
