The Femtech Market Map: 45+ Startups Focused On Women’s Healthcare & Sexual Wellness


Startups targeting women’s healthcare have multiplied in recent years, spurred in part by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin’s launch of fertility tracking app Glow in 2013, which saw early funding from high-profile VCs such as Andreessen Horowitz and Founders Fund.

Today, we see a number of startups offering fertility tracking apps, as well as startups focused on egg freezing and fertility treatments, women-only clinical care, and even subscription tampons. Other top-tier VCs have entered the field, as well. Kleiner Perkins, for example, has backed fertility platform Progyny ($49M in total disclosed funding), while NEA has backed sexual wellness startup Nuelle ($23M in total disclosed funding). Most recently on 1/26/17, reproductive therapeutics startup Obseva announced pricing for a planned IPO.
