What is “femtech”?

One of Clue’s co-founders, Ida Tin, coined the term femtech in 2016 to define the group of technologies that are designed to support and advance women’s healthcare.

The technologies within this category include fertility solutions, period and fertility tracking apps, reproductive system health care, women’s sexual wellness products, pregnancy and nursing care, period care goods, at-home fertility monitoring devices and general healthcare.

Ida Tin, 

Co-founder & Chairwoman

Ida knew immediately that in order for these products to be taken seriously, the market needed to be defined, so she suggested that Clue should begin to call itself a femtech company.

By defining the group of products that are associated with female health, we are creating an entirely new category of technology. Grouping these technologies paves the way for femtech conferences and VC’s to invest in femtech and create even more products within this segment that are important and needed in the world.

Values

Trust

We earn people’s trust by honoring their privacy, being transparent about how we use their data, and providing them with honest and accurate health information.

Care

Care is at the core of everything we do, both in how we support and communicate with people, and in the products and technology we create for them. We genuinely wish to help them improve their lives and live more fully.

Science

Rooted in science, Clue’s brand and products were born out of research and data. We continually strive to find the most accurate, forward-thinking information on menstrual and reproductive health, only sharing what we confidently believe in and can provide evidence for.

Clue is such an invaluable app! As someone with PCOS and other health conditions that contribute to painful and irregular cycles, Clue has helped me to see patterns in my cycle.

This app is almost scary with how accurate it is in prediction of ovulation and menstruation times. I'd give 10 stars if I could.

Esther Mungai

Proudly female founded and led
