During this session urologist Dr. Matthew Zielgelmann will discuss opportunities for collaboration between medical professionals
and sex tech entrepreneurs with a particular focus on:

  • Current issues related to male sexual health
  • What he sees from patients as unmet needs
  • How to use clinical data to advance sex tech market
