Last year in the lead up to International Women’s Day, we wrote a blog post called “The Future is Male”
, which explored how so much of the world around us is designed by men, for men.
So this year, we thought we’d do the same, but let you in on some of the ideas coming out of our recent Sextech Hackathon (run in collaboration with Future of Sex
), from a range of female entrepreneurs.
The hackathon which ran in Melbourne over Valentine’s Day weekend brought together some of the leading authorities in the $30B Sextech industry to inspire, discuss and mentor teams as they innovated solutions.
The winning teams from the hackathons both consisted of all-female teams, who created very different - but still exciting - solutions. The 1st place winners, Happy Campers created a learning platform which aims to help teach school children about sex, the right way. And the 2nd place winners, Jellie, developed the concept of creating barrier protection, which can be used by any and every body, aiming to spread facts, not STIs. Their initial focus is in the aged care sector.
