Building on the success of the Women’s Health Innovation Summit Europe 2022, the WHIS team is returning to Switzerland (27-28 April). The impact-driven Summit is on a mission to improve the access to and quality of healthcare for women across the globe, and it’s got an exciting agenda lined up this year!
The FemTech market is growing. Finally, more attention is being given to the importance of women’s health and this long-neglected market is taking off. In Europe, the distribution of FemTech companies sits at 27% – pretty low compared to North America’s 51% – and there’s huge potential for growth for innovative companies.
The Women’s Health Innovation Summit (WHIS) aims to act as the catalyst for this growth in the development of solutions in this underserved area.
The Summit, taking place in Switzerland in April, offers a unique opportunity for connection and partnerships. It brings together the leaders and innovators from Europe and Israel, from large pharmaceutical companies and biotechs to startups, investors, and service providers, to collectively drive forward the women’s health market.
The jam-packed agenda is available to preview here and the speaker lineup features a variety of inspiring voices.
2023 Innovation Showcase
This year’s Summit is bursting with opportunities to showcase your organisation and expertise in the field.
The Innovation Showcase at the first Women’s Health Innovation Summit Europe saw a group of start-ups from across the women’s health industry take to the stage to highlight their technology, device, service, or product that is driving the future of care.
This year, 15 startups, hand-picked by the Selection Committee, will present in front of an audience of over 350 potential partners and investors for the chance to win a generous prize bundle, as well as gain exposure and be placed at the forefront of driving solutions in the industry.
All applications are stage agnostic and can relate to all solutions across women’s health. Apply for the showcase here.
