“When I lie awake thinking of women and their health globally, I remind myself: the world has made a lot of progress in recent years…Too many women are still missing out on the opportunity to get educated, support themselves, and obtain the health services they need, when they need them”

Dr Flavia Bustreo, Assistant Director General for Family, Women’s and Children’s Health through the Life-course, World Health Organization

INNOVATION SPOTLIGHT: Showcasing the most innovative and disruptive companies in women’s health. 8 companies, hand picked by our prestigious Selection Committee, actively seeking financial investment, acquisition and/or partnership presenting on the main stage, in a quick-fire round of presentations.

Why Attend

Women are becoming the orchestraters of their healthcare journeys and demanding more holistic treatment solutions from their healthcare providers.

The healthcare industry needs to evolve to meet this previously unmet need by providing innovative solutions for the healthcare issues affecting women, improving engagement and communication strategies with end-users, as well as collaborating between industry players - which are the key to delivering value and improved outcomes for women's health.

But how do we get there? 

The Women’s Health Innovation Summit is the leading platform for the key industry players in women’s health innovation and femtech to gather and share commercial strategies, develop the road-map to create successful strategic partnerships and improve women’s health by converging healthcare innovation and technology.

Become a Sponsor

Kisaco Research provides the much-needed platform on which industry executives can network, connect and learn from each other as well as meet potential industry partners.
Far from the typical ‘meet-and-greet’ exhibition experience, you – as a sponsor or exhibitor – will be positioned as a partner of the event with a focus on the benefits of your product and brand, rather than just a name on an exhibition list.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with Kisaco Research will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
