The FemTech space is defined as new technology created to address women’s health, and it is forecast to be worth $9 billion in 2024, according to Frost & Sullivan. While that is wonderful, it covers a very broad swath of user needs, and so I wanted to look at the part of a woman’s body that goes through so many stages of change and experiences: the vagina.
Not everyone will experience all parts of this journey, but every moment in this journey is an expected part of what a vagina will experience with no medical pathology.
I call it VagTech.
What you see is an inventory of companies (the width of each bar shows the number of companies) that are addressing the lifecycle of a healthy vagina, and a tally of their supporting capital (the height shows the total investment). Where a company addresses multiple parts of the journey, it is placed in one (primary) category and its funding counted only once.
By looking at companies that are innovating for a woman’s healthy vagina, we can see which areas investors value and understand, and which still hold a ton of opportunity for innovation.
The inclusion criteria:
What you see is a result of my research, and I have surely missed some companies that are doing exciting things. If you know of a newly created company that is currently offering a solution to address the moments of a health vagina, and is not already represented, please submit it below.SUBMIT A COMPANY
