Agetech x Femtech

Agetech and Femtech have a lot in common: both emerged in the 2010's, both address global challenges, and both have historically been underfunded. They also intersect, particularly around menopause.

We've been noticing a gradual uptick in these deals for a some time - deals related to menopause really stick in your mind, even for those who'll never experience it themselves. So, when 5 of the 28 Agetech deals this month turned out to also be Femtech, it sparked our curiosity. Just how rapidly is this space growing?

After some digging through news stories, tech blogs, vc portfolios and more, we were able to piece together a mostly complete list of funded menopause-related startups. As you can see above, not have the number of funded companies increased significantly over the past 4 years, but excitingly there's also been an increase in geographic diversity as well. With 5 more this month, three of which happened outside of the US, this trend looks like it'll continue to accelerate. 

Learn more about them and all the other deals from February below, but first, coming up next month is...
