Disruptive forces are converging on the business of family planning, a field that touches on hundreds of millions in the US and billions of lives globally. These trends are changing how we plan our reproductive lives and creating once-in-a generation opportunities for business innovators and investors.
FemTech, or female technology, an emerging sector that primarily addresses women's health, including fertility solutions, period-tracking apps, pregnancy and nursing care, women’s sexual wellness, and reproductive system health care is exciting venture investors and consumers. Fundamental advances in genomics, microfluidics and Big Data/ Artificial Intelligence are giving us new tools for realizing our personal goals. Business models are shifting as a fragmented mom-and-pop industry consolidates, standardizes and scales. Nowhere in medicine is the fight over affordable access to care and who pays for it more controversial.
