Elena Rueda Carrasco’s background stems from Biomedical Sciences and Epigenetics, followed by her Master’s degree from Imperial College London in Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management. Combining the knowledge of both disciplines, Elena has worked in business operations, consulting, and project management for a London based consultancy, a multinational health and social care provider, and Merck KGaA’s Innovation Centre. Fascinated by the healthcare start-up ecosystem, Elena has worked with several HealthTech start-ups in the fields of clinical trial recruitment systems, drug formulations, fertility and FemTech. Elena is also a freelance copywriter, and the Co-founder and CEO of Dama Health – a FemTech company focused on offering women and clinicians personalised contraception recommendations through bespoke screening tests and pharmacogenetic science.
Paulina is a final year medic at Imperial College London, with a BSc in Management from Imperial Business School. She's also a Co-Founder of Dama Health - a startup on a mission to bring personalised medicine to female health. Throughout med school, she developed her interests for digital health and AI in medicine, worked with various start-ups, such as CeraCare, research groups and mentored students interested in healthtech.
Danae is a doctor working in emergency medicine in Oxford, with 20 years of healthcare experience across four continents. She has a background in public health and is a member of the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV. Very much a “people person,” Danae loves collaborating with driven and diverse individuals to devise new or enhanced solutions that improve lives by promoting health and preventing disease. To that end, she co-founded two med-tech startups, both of which were accepted onto the University of Oxford's business accelerator program (Oxford Foundry Elevate). In addition to being the CEO of Yoxly, her second venture, Danae also serves as the medical director, head of partnerships, and has recently closed their first funding round.
Katia Lang co-founded Femtech Lab, which is a leading global femtech-focussed accelerator, directed at women’s health related entrepreneurs/startups. She is also the CEO of fintech times, the media company.
