The Friday Five The FemTech Industry
FemTech is the rapidly growing industry that includes products, services, devices, diagnostic methods and software that use technology to champion women’s health. The term “FemTech” was created by Ida Tin (co-founder and CEO of Clue) in 2012. From general healthcare to menstruation, fertility, birth control, pregnancy, menopause, chronic conditions, and hormonal disorders, FemTech encompasses innovations that focus on the improvement of the entirety of women’s health and health care experience. This week’s Friday Five focuses on the latest news, organizations, leaders, events and podcasts in the FemTech industry.
