MEET US

The organisations have come together to empower women with a diverse range of thinking at all levels of the HealthTech industry and assist with effecting cultural change.

These organisations are created from a broad sector representing over 200 companies across New Zealand from early stage start-ups and research medical technology companies, to privately owned New Zealand suppliers and global multinationals.

Women in HealthTech will initially be focused on providing an array of educational and networking events and the opportunity for mentoring and collaborating with other organisations in health, women’s affairs and business innovation.
