The investment opportunity in Fertility and Women’s health

The fertility sector continues to steadily grow, but with a fragmented market, consolidation is not straightforward. The revolution to address health inequalities for women presents a huge opportunity – particularly linked to fertility, pregnancy and menopause. Technology has a big role to play. ‘Femtech’ , the term used to describe technology aimed at targeting women’s health, is set to be a $50bn industry by 2025. This session looks in depth at the crossover of these two sectors and the future growth prospects.

Our attendees say

What struck me was the availability of some of the brightest minds in health care and the seamless interaction. I get to meet a whole lot of people in a very fluid way. I would not be able to do that at any other conference that I am aware of.  I’m gonna be following up on quite a few leads. It’s gonna be great in the next few months to bring all of our ideas together.

Ronnie van der Merwe, CEO, Mediclinic International, South Africa/Switzerland/UAE

‘It’s very interesting to meet peers and find out about their plans, exchange best practices and ideas. We can also see on the public side what regulators are planning to do in the future and this is good insight.’

Zisis Sotiriou, Senior VP Regional COO, Affidea, pan-European

‘What struck me is the level of participation – the CEOs and CxOs were here. That makes a big difference. And the learning opportunities. We hear about new technologies, hear about examples from other countries.’

Dilip Jose, Managing Director and CEO, Manipal Hospitals, India

‘The value in coming to HBI is to have in one place, all the CEOs and leaders of healthcare companies that share the same problems even though there are cultural differences and it helps me to understand what are the trends and focus on my goals.’
