Celebrating Women’s History Month: Voices of Women in Health Tech

Join Loft Digital and Health Foundry as we celebrate Women’s History Month in March with our Female Founders Network. The theme for this event is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories” and will focus on the intersection of women’s health and technology. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from industry leaders and connect with like-minded individuals

Did you know?

Stats from Tech Nation suggests only 19% of the tech workforce are women. Forbes states that only 2% of funding goes to women-led start-ups. For women of colour, the stats are far more dismal at just 0.64%.

Even with the rise of FemTech start-ups, which are focusing on women’s healthcare—a sector that’s historically been significantly overlooked and undermined, only 3% of total HealthTech funding went to FemTech start-ups in 2020.  

The event aims to recognise and honour the accomplishments of female founders in the digital health and tech industry, with continued lack of representation of women in both these fields it’s important to highlight the challenges and successes whilst shedding light on the importance of personal wellbeing.

The event will provide a platform for attendees to be inspired, motivated and gain a deeper understanding of the significance of wellbeing. Additionally, the event will serve as a safe and inclusive space for people to come together and connect.
