This category aims to support women who are changing the way people think about their health and how to care for others. We are working with Our Mobile Health and Collider Health with support from other partners including One HealthTech and Women of Wearables to discover exciting and innovative health technology that has been designed and pioneered by women.
While half the world’s population is female, and most health decisions are carried out by women only 9% of health tech businesses are founded by women , just 9% of investment into UK start-ups goes to female founders , and a mere 17% of the UK technology sector is female. These statistics need to change and we want to help the shift by supporting women and celebrating their achievements in health technology.
Please complete the form below if you would like to register your interest for the awards. We want to hear from all women who have developed an innovative product or service for consumers to manage and/or improve their health and wellbeing - it doesn’t matter what the health tech is, as long as it helps people live happier healthier lives!
