Exciting news! A FemTech village will be built in the heart of VivaTech for the first time. Women’s well-being, menstrual health, reproduction and contraception, pregnancy and nursing, mental health, and other issues will be covered. In collaboration with FemTech France, a challenge for entrepreneurs proposing innovations in women’s health will be organised. A dozen startups will be chosen and offered a boot camp to help them grow their businesses.
“More than 3,000 girls and young women from all over Europe will also be attending the event to encourage career development, break down stereotypes and gain insight into the digital industries. Other initiatives will include the Female Founder Challenge (an award that aims to accelerate the funding of women-led startups and encourage investment funds to commit to greater gender equality at all levels), which is returning for its 5th edition; or a new Impact Builder acceleration program with DiversiDays for underrepresented entrepreneurs in tech.”
