Science and technology have helped women and couples take control of their reproductive health and make important life decisions. We used CB Insights data to identify 13 funded private companies in the increasingly important category. The startups range from biotechnology companies, to startups marketing fertility tracking instruments, and big data applications analyzing in-vitro fertilization (IVF) probabilities.
