In recent years, Femtech has surged as a way to provide innovative solutions for gender parity in health care. The market has taken notice and it has been predicted that it will be worth $50 billion by 2025. With women-specific health needs and perspectives long ignored, companies large and small are looking at new ways to diversify the product design process, to maximize product development, go-to-market, and commercial success, as well as create new technology to improve overall women’s health. During this discussion, a panel of women leaders will gather to discuss their thoughts on the future of women’s health, critical factors to incorporate in the design and engineering process, the road to femtech success and beyond, and the many barriers still to break through.

The panel will address:
  • The Road to Creating a Parallel Health Care Industry Tailored to Women
  • External Influences Impacting the Industry (environmental factors, regulation)
  • Beyond Reproductive Health
  • Women Health Funding
  • Key Technologies for Femtech

In addition to the panel, new this year, we're expanding our WISE programming with:
  • dedicated WISE Breakfast in partnership with Women in Electronics
  • WISE Meetup
  • Woman of the Year Award
WISE programming is included in all passes.
