Investors are starting to recognise the value of the FemTech space, which is estimated to be worth $50 billion by 2025, according to Frost & Sullivan. Women in the workforce spend 29% more per capita on healthcare than their male peers and they’re 75% more likely to use digital tools to track their health.
A decade ago, just $23 million worth of venture capital was invested in the global FemTech industry, according to PitchBook data. That figure grew at a modest pace until 2015, when there was a spike in funding that totaled $334 million. This year has already seen significantly more VC funding for companies in the industry than any year in the last decade: $391.5 million across 36 deals.
Notable FemTech deals in the past year include Maven Clinic’s $45 million Series C, Modern Fertility’s $15 million Series A, Peanut’s $12 million Series A, Inne’s $8.7 million Series A and Daye’s $5.5 million seed round.
