Apply to Pitch

Are you running a startup in the Women’s Health industry and raising capital? We want to meet you!

We’ve got preferences, but not firm requirements:

  • Tech-enabled & defensible market position (intellectual property and market traction all count)
  • Some (or lots) of proven product/ market fit
  • Raised some outside capital (ideal though not necessarily required)

Companies that are selected will be offered 1-1 pitch coaching from Upstate Capital and be invited to join an invitation-only CEO Roundtable in advance of the event.


Women’s health is a new focal point for investors. More research and more investment dollars are going into solving healthcare challenges that are specific to women such as breast cancer and ovarian cancer, fertility, pregnancy, birthing, and menopause. Some healthcare issues disproportionately affect women like infant care, but others such as heart disease (which is the leading cause of death of among women) have not had solutions developed which meaningfully consider gender as a factor. 

Paired with broader industry trends in digital health, like monitoring and tracking, UAS use in providing medical care, and AI use in diagnostics paired with electronic health records, there is significant innovation impacting women’s health, and increasingly, interest in investment in the sector.

Pitches from companies that create better access, care and outcomes for women’s health
Conversations with business owners and CEOs building women’s health businesses
Discussions with industry experts and investors in women’s health
