Why this venture capitalist thinks LGBTQ+ and womens health is the next big investment frontier – GeekWire

Women make the vast majority of healthcare decisions and on average spend 30% more than men on healthcare. And yet when it comes to funding next-generation digital health concepts, just 3% of fundings in the past decade have addressed the unique health and wellness needs of women.

Seattle venture capitalist Julie Sandler sees those numbers, and senses opportunity.

Every incentive you could possibly want to serve the well being and health of the female identifying population, its acutely there, said Sandler, a managing director at Pioneer Square Labs. When youve got an area like that, that has just been so historically, repeatedly and sustainably underserved, and under-invested over generations, that creates opportunity.

Sandler shares more insights about this emerging category of investment in the latest episode of 2025: Tomorrow, Today, a new podcast created by GeekWire Studios in partnership with Northern Trust.
