Applications for Women Who Tech's FemTech and HealthTech Grants Program closed July 22, 2021. We will be awarding $20K in equity free grants to women-led startups globally. 

How it works? Eligible startups must have completed the Grants Application by July 22, 2021. Our investor jury reviewed applications, and selected the top 5 startups to participate in our 6-week virtual program. We work with the startups to hone their fundraising pitch and provide them with investor introductions. At the conclusion of the program, the startups will each pitch to a panel of investors, and $20,000 in equity-free grants will be awarded.

In addition to the grants, W Fund, SteelSky Ventures, HearstLab, Citrine Angels, and other funds will also be evaluating all finalists for further investment. We’ve selected these funds to partner with because they have a strong track record of putting their money where their mouth is and investing in several women founders.
