Healthtech startups can apply to win prizes including $50,000 & one-on-one mentoring with investors as part of the Women Startup Challenge Program.

On the 7th October 2019, the Women Startup Challenge Europe HealthTech will showcase 10 of the best early-stage, women-led healthtech startups from across Europe, and those in the US with a presence in Europe. The program is supported by Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS and cohosted by the Office of the Mayor of Paris.

Launched in partnership with Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist and Craig Newmark Philanthropies, the Women Startup Challenge is on a mission to close the funding gap and shakeup a culture and economy that’s made it exceedingly difficult for women to launch startups and raise capital.

The 10 finalists will pitch to a jury of investors on the 7th October at City Hall in Paris, France. Previous judges have been investors from Mozilla, Google Ventures, Techstars, Illuminate Ventures, OneRagtime, Techstars, and more.

Prizes include $50,000 as an equity-free cash grant, one-on-one mentoring with investors, among other critical startup services.
