  3. Focus on Femtech: Hana Janebdar on closing the healthcare gap

    Comments Off on Focus on Femtech: Hana Janebdar on closing the healthcare gap

    When Hana Janebdar, co-founder and CEO at Juno Bio, a health company working to decode the vaginal microbiome, was pitching her startup, she was asked by some male executives at an investment committee meeting if she could avoid using the word ‘vagina’.

    “We even had some of our ads banned for ‘inappropriate language,’” Hana recalls. “It made no sense. This is medical terminology – and it’s what we do.”

    Hana’s experience is not uncommon. The gap in healthcare and wellness often means that issues related to female bodies are considered inappropriate or taboo – and therefore, remain unaddressed.

    For many, this leads to years of frustration, obstacles and dismissal when trying to get health and wellness issues resolved.

  4. Entrepreneur First Paris’ 5th Demo Day

    Comments Off on Entrepreneur First Paris’ 5th Demo Day

    On March 25th, we unveiled our latest cohort of startups during a virtual Demo Day. 

    This is the 5th Entrepreneur First Paris cohort to present at Demo Day and the second to be impacted by the global coronavirus pandemic. The scale of this crisis has been unprecedented, with most of our programme being held virtually and our founders being limited in their ability to meet face-to-face. 

    However, this hasn’t stopped our 5th cohort of impactful and talented founders from building globally relevant companies here in France.  Challenging times create opportunities for disruption and innovation and we are confident that these companies will gain unprecedented investor interest as the new normal encourages the new wave of entrepreneurs to think beyond physical borders.

    We hope you enjoy the pitches. 

    If you’d like to meet any of the teams and learn more about their company, please email [email protected]. We are organising office hours with investors.

    Comments Off on Building a diverse company from the ground up: Maria Meier

    As part of our Female Founder Friday series, Entrepreneur First hosted a discussion with Maria Meier, CTO and co-founder of Phantasma Labs. 

    Joined by other current and aspiring female founders, Maria reflected on her experience building the company with co-founder Ramakrishna Nanjundaiah, how she’d overcome some of the core challenges both in business and as a woman in technology, and the insights she wanted to share with those on the same journey.
