Join us for our FemTech webinar in April in which we will discuss the latest innovations in the fertility space!
About this Event
Around 1 in 7 couples in the UK have difficulty conceiving. Fertility has become a global reproductive health issue, but it still remains a taboo. The stigma around it prevents individuals and couples from accessing information about different fertility options, fertility tracking devices, apps, or fertility treatments.
FemTech is one of the fastest-growing health industries at the moment estimated to reach $50 billion by 2025, and fertility as a sector will continue to drive the growth of the industry in 2021, according to Frost & Sullivan.
In this webinar, we will be discussing the latest innovations in the fertility space, the current challenges the industry and the patients are experiencing, how has the pandemic affected the patients and the treatments, what is the future of fertility, and what new options and trends we will be seeing in the future.

Dr. Yael Gold-Zamir is the co-founder and CEO at Embryonics. Embryonics is bringing novel artificial intelligence (AI) solutions to the world of IVF. Despite the market increasing steadily, success rates have disappointingly plateaued (~25%.) Taking a holistic approach, the company is committed to addressing the reasons behind this with its team of expert computer engineers, medics and biologists. They design deep learning neural networks to improve the most critical decisions along the process, utilizing Big Data to service those in need. By improving and simplifying the process, Embryonics hopes to make IVF safer, cheaper, more accessible and above all more successful. In short, the company aims to bring reproductive autonomy to parents in need.
