Femtech in Asia - S1E2 Yesmom with Peter Macquart-Moulin
Femtech In Asia is your window into the world of femtech and sexual wellness in Asia, brought to you by The Della HQ.
I believe that we are on the cusp of high growth in this space, in this region, and I’d love more people around the world to know about the work, and meet the incredible personalities and businesses in the industry.
In this episode, I speak with Peter Macquart-Moulin from Yesmom in Thailand. Yesmom makes health and fertility information more accessible to women with affordable, at-home, user-friendly hormone blood test kits with personalised digital results. By bringing a wide-range of validated laboratory tests directly to consumers in Asia the company aims to empower individuals and promote proactive healthcare.
When Peter and his co-founder first pitched Yesmom 4, almost 5 years ago, the word femtech was not even in the Asia market investor vocabulary! To date, there are more than 350,000 users on Yesmom, and the company has expanded to India in 2020. Peter tells me that the first person to purchase Yesmom in India was a 20 year old woman – something he was very happy about, as the intention behind Yesmom from the beginning was, and still is to help women gain agency over their bodies and their health.
Yesmom has plans to conquer other Asian countries this year, perhaps starting with Singapore!
I love hearing about the grit and passion for this industry.
