Health products tailored to men have long dominated the market – think Viagra, hair replacement and even most fitness apps. However, a new sector dedicated to meeting women’s needs has emerged. “Femtech” – i.e., products ranging from smart breast pumps to fertility trackers – is now attracting increasing VC dollars. We’ll explore the continuing challenges and opportunities for Femtech, including the potential impact of the Trump administration policies on the sector moving forward.
