Event Details

Join us for our May event where together with founders, researchers and technologists we will discuss all things fem tech, health tech, wearables and all in between!

Speakers include:

  • Madeleine Harris Smith works in healthcare communications at MHPC, with a specialist focus on innovation, disruption and public health. She helps organisations to tackle the biggest public policy and communications challenges of the day. She is a commentator on issues connected to Fem Tech, having featured on podcasts and written articles on the subject.
  • Peter Astbury is a designer and entrepreneur on a mission to tackle women’s health issues. His product for menopause, Grace, aims to automatically detect and prevent hot flushes before they have a chance to appear. Inspiration came following a conversation with his manager during an internship where he was shocked by both the number of women affected by menopause and the lack of solutions. Having graduated in 2017, Peter has continued development on Grace and intends to ultimately change global perceptions of women’s health, paving the way for stylish health tech designed to be seen.
  • Bartek Hugo Trzciński is CTO at Untitled Kingdom, particularly interested in new technologies and creating software for IoT products. He is aniOS engineer with 10 years of experience. In his work, he believes that the quality of the code is the main key to success. He is also multiple participant of the Apple WWDC in the States and public speaker.

Before Adia, Rose worked in policy, comms and research across think tanks and regulators.
  • Ruby Raut is a passionate environmentalist on a mission to create the most comfortable and eco-friendly menstrual product that completely replaces disposable tampons and pads. She is the co-founder and CEO of WUKA period pants. She is a perfect example “adversities creates opportunities”. She developed the WUKA period pants from her personal struggle and her determination to create a product so that girls and women like her not have to go through the struggles that she went through when it came to manage their periods.
  • Kateryna Portmann studied an MBA at the Steinbeis University of Berlin, International Business at the Institute of International Relations in Kyiv. Her superpower is product management, helping teams outperform by organizing work in the right way and with the right processes. In 2018, she moved to London and joined Medopad as Product Manager.
