What Do We Do?
We bring together cutting-edge innovators (femtech startups, researchers, clinicians & corporates) to tackle collective pain-points in women’s health from a 360 degree point of view.
Women’s health needs to be built — that means introducing students to femtech & scouting researchers to disseminate their insights to a broader audience.

Women are 34% more likely than men to experience severe side effects from cancer treatments (for immunotherapy that number rises to a 50% increased risk of serious side effects).
A study conducted by a major cancer centre found that cancer treatment often fails to take into account the personal needs of women:
As children, we absorb the stories we are told. Fairytales. Marvel superheroes. We soak up their meanings and structures as facts and organizing principles.
As a society we function in the same way: we live guided by unseen codes and hidden systems. The problem with hidden systems? They hold us back without our ever even knowing it.
That’s certainly the case with #womenshealth — what we fund impacts what we know, what we study and the therapies that come to market.
Let’s take a look at a few companies that are taking action to close the gender data gap in healthcare.
We asked Roche why they wanted to collaborate on this year’s FemTechnology Summit. Check out their answer and take a look at the beautiful venue for the FemTechnology Summit 2023!
Happy International Women’s Day! International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th every year to commemorate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It is also a day to raise awareness of gender inequality and advocate for women’s rights.
In the UK, gynaecology waiting lists faced the biggest increase in delays of all medical specialities post pandemic: growing by 60%. Women with conditions like endometriosis, prolapse and heavy bleeding waited more than a year to receive NHS care in England – because the surgeries were classified as elective procedures for benign conditions.
Innovation in women’s health can only occur from a 360 degree perspective: core stakeholders in that mission are femtech founders, clinicians, researchers and of course patients themselves. That’s why at femtechnology we strive to include the full range of perspectives to have a holistic overview of where the field is headed. As we kick off a new season of interviews we thought we’d share some of our favourite interviews:
Did you know that for women with epilepsy the concentration of their medication drops during the lutealphase of their menstrualcycle? Women can have breakthrough seizures as a result. But instead of tailoring the dosage of their medication so that the concentration varies in function of the menstrual cycle, doctors either increase the dosage across the board or they tell women they can’t drive and have to have follow-up appointments with neurologists.
