In 2022, FemTechLab and Essity teamed up for the first time around Essity Ventures’ EVolution co-creation program with startups.


Through a 3-day event in Munich, startups co-created collaborative business concepts that put the startups’ value proposition at the center, while leveraging Essity’s scaling power. 3 startups were selected to lead in-market pilots with Essity; one of them was the startup, MUTU System.
