Mission Menopause

We know that the field recognizes problems best. So we partner with the ecosystem to understand real problems affecting real women. This means, we fall in love with the problems, not the solutions.

Our partners for this mission are: Medical Centers: Soroka, Barzilai, and Hillel Yaffe HMOS: Clalit, and patient organizations: Nashim Legufan.  With them we identified a long list of challenges.

Now, we need you. Come fall in love with the problems, and ideate solutions. A unique opportunity to innovate together, generate and develop ideas for addressing some of the most pressing problems  facing women in menopause today.

So, if you are an entrepreneur, designer, engineer, clinician, researcher, or just curious and passionate about developing ideas from scratch, we invite you to join our first cohort.

We are looking for individuals with entrepreneurial spirit and skills,that believe in the importance of building new products and services to tackle women’s health issues.

In exchange we offer insight and entrance into the field, onsite access to top mentors and experts, team curation, business development and an enriching experience!

Mission Menopause

What happens
after I apply?

We choose the best applicants and curate teams, in an admission process.  

This means you don't need  an idea, team or prototype to join us, but you need to have the passion, and the knowledge, to understand the problem you will be tackling.

Our team and  mentors will guide you through a 12 week journey from scratch to scale. You will gain tools for critical design, systems and gender-lens thinking processes. Together with your team you will create and test innovative new ideas that have the potential to become a scalable, commercial venture.


Up to 2 best and right ideas will be chosen at the end of the 12 weeks by our investor committee, will move on to our venture builder for further R&D and receive pre seed investment.
