A bit less than a month ago, we announced the partnership with Health Startup Association of Finland – HealthSPA and Girls in Tech Helsinki for a Women & Healthtech track at this year’s Upgraded Life Festival.
Together, with this Women & Healthtech track, we aim to enhance the visibility of women in the health sector, raise awareness of the femtech and other health products developed by women and introduce role models for both women and men. By role models we understand entrepreneurs, investors, ecosystem shakers, academic and/or medical experts working and making an impact in the health industry.
The Women & Healthtech track is part of Upgraded Life Festival conference and attendees must own a the conference tickets in order to participate.
Today, we are very proud to reveal the program as well as the name of our first speakers.
