First-Ever Fast Pitch Competition Winners Focused on Products/Solutions for Women Ages 40+ Announced

LOS ANGELES, CA (PRUnderground) May 24th, 2021

Individuals interested in FemTech tuned into “The FemAging Era: Advancing Women’s HealthTech Innovation and Investment” online event on Thursday, May 20th to hear founders, investors, physicians, innovators and entrepreneurs discuss the gap in HealthTech for women ages 40+ and review solutions that are currently being developed to address the needs of this population.  The event was hosted by The FemAging Project and Keiretsu Forum SoCal.  Winners of the fast pitch include the Grand Prize Madorra, https://www.madorra.com/; Runner Up, InControl Medical, https://www.incontrolmedical.com/ and the People’s Choice awardee,  Bone Health Technologies http://www.bonehealthtech.com/

Says Denise Pines, Co-Founder of The FemAging Project, “Today, everyone is a winner because we showcased a variety of solutions from skincare to surgical equipment designed for perimenopause and menopausal women. And this is the first step in normalizing an experience that every woman will go through.”

Furthers Connie Harrell, Regional President, Keiretsu Forum SoCal Region, “This partnership with The FemAging Era Project has been enlightening and has encouraged me to direct some focus on this sector.  With 41% of the 82M invested in companies through 2020 by Keiretsu members going to Life Sciences, I am excited to see what we can accomplish through 2021.”

Truly, The FemAging Project with Keiretsu have made huge strides in increasing awareness for the gap in women’s health.  By providing a platform for entrepreneurs to present their products and solutions and be given feedback and guidance from a stellar group of judges is highly unusual—and commendable.

Judges for the pitching competition included:

Adrianna Samaniego, Dr. Faz Bashi, Alice Zheng, Maria Velissaris, Tracy Dooley, Dr. Shubhra Jain, Marylou Garcia, Abby Miller Levy, and Amy Coveny

Concludes Pines, “We have created a space where we can bring investors and innovators together in a collaborative, rather than competitive environment.  In the Summer we will Launch the FemAging Intelligence Platform: This unique premium product will feature insights on women’s healthtech innovation, investment activity, feature entrepreneurs working in this space and provide the community with opportunities for connection, engagement and connection.”
