For Women’s History Month, we wanted to celebrate the accomplishments of female scientists who have founded digital health companies. Women scientists have started some amazing companies—but until now it hasn’t been easy to find information about many of them in one place. (It’s similar to what we discovered when we created our list of female physicians who are digital health founders.)
From gene editing to therapeutics to femtech to preventive care, check out some of the exciting ways that female scientist-founded companies are innovating in digital health.
We know that there are lots more of these companies out there! If you’re a female scientist founder, and would like to be included in this list, you can add yourself by clicking the button below:
