I have question, or maybe am asking for advice... I guess mostly I just feel a little lost and would appreciate some guidance!
I have a PhD in neuroscience, and since 2017 have been focusing exclusively on women's reproductive health (in the neuroscience sphere). I'm working in research within academia, but have reached the point where I'd like to transition out, like yesterday. I'm really interested in FemTech, and have been passively involved with the FemTech area for somewhere around 6 months now, attending online conferences, webinars, etc. I'd really love to be involved in such a wonderful, innovative area, as women's health and well-being is not only my current career area, but also my passion.
The academic world doesn't really focus on networking outside of the ivory tower, so I guess part of the advice I'm looking for is how to connect with aspiring startups or established companies in the FemTech sphere, especially those that need scientific researchers. I have a lot of skills that I've spent years developing, and think I would be a great addition to the area, but could probably use help learning to pitch myself.
I have many, many more questions but I realize this is getting a bit lengthy! If anyone is interested in connecting, either here or through LinkedIn, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thanks so much for taking the time to read!
