Our goals for the TECH4EVA 2023 Accelerator Program

What we hope to achieve

Mihna is our first femtech health solution

NuroKor Femtech’s mission is to address the unmet health needs of women, such as period pain and endometriosis, which represent a significant health inequality, and can have a severe impact on quality of life. We’re doing this using our signature technology that uses therapeutic electrical currents to tackle pain, recovery, inflammation and other issues.

The first of our solutions that we are currently working on is Mihna, an app-controlled therapeutic for managing menstrual health, the symptoms of which can include pain, stomach cramps, and more. It will also feature an international community where women can share their stories and experiences and contribute to research into how to treat conditions such as period pain and endometriosis.

Our primary goal for the programme is to advance our mission to improve women’s health and wellbeing. Therefore, during the programme here’s what we’ll be focusing on:

  • Refining and developing Mihna and the direction of NuroKor Femtech through feedback from mentors and other programme participants.
  • Make new contacts among potential partners, investors and customers.
  • Learn from other successful startups and entrepreneurs in the programme and gain valuable insights into growing our business
  • Secure further funding and investment to help us scale and grow our business and deliver the healthtech solutions that will close the health gap for women.


Being part of the TECH4EVA 2023 Accelerator Program is going to be an incredible experience for us at NuroKor Femtech. We’ve already begun to meet our mentors and other participants, and the quality is extremely high, with innovative experts from multiple areas of healthtech.

We’ll be sharing more news as the programme progresses, and you’re certain to hear more about Mihna in the coming months, so make sure to keep an eye out.
