Dr michelle perugini portrait

Dr Michelle Perugini

"Women's health has been an under-served area from an investment and technology perspective for a very long time and I think now it's becoming very apparent that there's a massive opportunity for these types of areas to really be improved."

Personal experience, especially a traumatic one, can often be a catalyst for striving to make positive change in the world.

For Dr Michelle Perugini, her own struggle with fertility was a motivation for combining her passions for healthcare and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to improve pregnancy rates for women undergoing IVF.

The company she co-founded, Presagen, is already making life-changing inroads in the 'femtech' space - a term coined in 2016 to describe the sector that uses technology to improve women's healthcare outcomes.

Michelle has big goals and intends to keep kicking them from her city-base at Lot Fourteen, where the COVID-19 situation has not dampened the "collective spirit" of Adelaide's thriving entrepreneurial community.
