Katy Longhurst , Founder & CEO

It was an amazing opportunity to have been selected to participate in the Discovery Spark Femtech and Women’s Health edition programme. As a new start-up we felt it would be really helpful joining a programme like this and it certainly did not disappoint. It has been such an experience; we’ve learnt so much from this process from both the lectures by amazing speakers and the other amazing start-ups in the cohort. What we really loved about the programme is that it introduces you to different concepts around business and things we can really embed as we’re starting on our journey to ensure we’re going in the right direction. If you get the opportunity to take part in Discovery Spark we really recommend jumping at it!
