What they say
Oriana Kraft, FemTech Summit founder
"Kickstart brings together an incredibly diverse ecosystem of partners, experts, and startups working to catalyze innovation in the healthcare industry. It was a pleasure to be a judge for the program and listen to the incredible startups that the program attracts. Given the impressive track record of former Kickstart collaborations I am sure that all forthcoming initiatives will bring innovation, and I am particularly excited about their work to shine a spotlight on women's health."
