In 2020, there was a boom in female technology (femtech) startups in Singapore. 

Femtech refers to the use of technology to develop software or hardware products, tools, and other applications that primarily focus on women’s health.

The term was coined by and Danish entrepreneur Ida Tin in 2016. Ida is also the founder of Clue, a period and fertility tracking app.

At least eight femtech startups were launched in 2020 alone. For example, Ferne Health and Ease are sexual health platforms that provide discreet, home-delivery STI testing and birth control options.

Dear Doc is a one-stop healthcare solution for women, while Fig Health is a platform that tests for, and manages Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) through tracking lifestyle changes.
