Beyond Fertility: The FemAging Era in HealthTech
WHY IS SILICON VALLEY MISSING THE $600 BILLION MIDLIFE WOMEN’S HEALTH CRISIS?
It’s no secret that women over the age of 40 represent a growing, diverse and economically powerful group. However, the unique health, wellness and innovation needs of the over 53 million women in the United States aged 40-60 have largely been ignored by Silicon Valley. Midlife wellness is not niche and this session brings together physicians, investors, innovators and entrepreneurs to discuss, illustrate and explore opportunities and challenges to advance women’s health. Discussion topics include Exploring the Why Behind the Women’s Health Gap; Women’s Health Investors on the FemAging Opportunity and What Does Agile Innovation Look Like in the FemAging Era?
