Pooja Sikka - Octopus Ventures - The Future of Femtech Jimmy's Jobs of the Future

    • Careers

 Today's episode is special for two reasons- firstly it's one of the first we've recorded in person a long time.
But this is also our second in the series organised with our partners: Octopus- who back the entrepreneurs of the future. 

And there are one better who exemplify that than today's guest Pooja Sikka.
 Pooja is a still practising GP, founder in her own right and is a partner at Octopus Ventures heading up their health tech investment wing- and its this latter hat she’ll mostly be wearing as she speaks to us today.
Octopus are producing a report in the emerging market of FemTech- technology designed around the improvement of women's health.
 And that forms a large part of today’s discussion-  female founders attracting VC investment is a recongised problem, but FemTech is an area that's traditionally been overlooked and undervalued despite the size of markets.
 We talk about Pooja’s fascinating career and how she brings together knowledge of health, entrepreneurship and finance.
 But first, we start in a topsy turvy way- bringing a question we usually save to the end right to the start.....
