#GAReads | Meet The Women Investors Supporting Early Women's Health Innovators
2019 has so far been quite an exciting year for the women’s health tech space. Elvie raised the largest funding round in the Femtech category to date with $42M, led by private equity firm IPGL. In February, Extend Fertility raised a $15M Series A from Regal Healthcare Capital Partners. Just two months after that, Kindbody, the millennial-focused yellow branded fertility and women’s health clinic, secured $15M in a round co-led by RRE Ventures and Perceptive Advisors.
The inherent challenges of fundraising for a femtech startup as a female founder have been widely discussed, yet the category is slowly consolidating and getting more attention from the VC community. These women investors saw its potential in the early days and share their perspective on the opportunities in women’s health.
