Workspace is proud to have partnered with Women of Wearables (WOW) to bring you this fantastic 90-minute webinar. Join us to find out about the present and future of healthcare, and the rise of new products in this space.
It is these days especially when we can witness the importance and the impact of telemedicine, and digital transformation in healthcare.
Digital technologies are constantly evolving and every day there are new companies keen to tackle some of the challenges in healthcare and use the power of technology to offer solutions.
WOW have brought together three founders to talk about innovative solutions and products disrupting the health tech industry, from telemedicine to sex tech and women's health tech.
During this webinar, WOW will discuss the present and the future of health tech, healthcare driven by technology, AI and other emerging technologies.
Some of the topics that will be covered:
1) What it’s like to start a business in an industry that is still a taboo, like sex tech
2) How to launch a product in a highly regulated environment
3) How to build a brand that can potentially have an impact on the lives of thousands of people
4) Why fem tech is the next big thing in the healthcare space
5) The importance of medical research for women's health and why lack of medical data in this space is actually an opportunity for fem tech businesses to build next generation of products and services for women.

Aagya Mathur, co-founder and CEO of Aavia
From starting a volunteer service to fill a community need in high school and founding a small business to provide affordable transportation to her undergraduate classmates, to now leading Aavia to improve women’s health and wellness, Aagya Mathur is consistently bridging gaps and solving inefficiencies. Through personal and professional experiences, she found her passion at the intersection of healthcare, innovation, and analytics-driven insights. During her consulting career, she worked with various clients to improve patient experience and medication adherence. However, she found she needed to be closer to the end-user to have the kind of impact she knew she could have. The Aavia team works with women at each step of development to rapidly prototype a solution that empowers women to take their birth control pill on time, every time. Aavia’s pocket-sized smart device contains patent-pending sensor technology that recognizes the count and position of pills in her original pack and sends notifications to the user's phone until she actually takes it.
