Women control 80 percent of healthcare decisions in the U.S. and spend 29 percent more per capita on healthcare compared to men — yet solutions focused on women's health received only 3.3 percent of total digital health funding in 2019 and 1.5 percent in the first half of 2020.

In a virtual conversation led by investor and serial entrepreneur Pamela York, co-founder and managing partner of Capita3, three MATTER startup members — Embr Labs CEO Elizabeth Gazda, Marani Health Founder and CEO Ann Holder and Univfy Co-founder and CEO Mylene Yao — discuss unmet needs in women's health, investment trends and how we can increase investment in women-led startups.
