sHouston, TX, October 28, 2021 – pH Partners, LLC (“PHP”), a boutique healthcare investment bank, is pleased to announce that its client FemTec Health, Inc. (“FemTec”) has completed its acquisition of Birchbox. Birchbox is an online subscription-based beauty retailer. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
FemTec Health is the founder of the AI and deep learning engine, BiomeAI™. The innovative engine is designed to translate consumer, genetic, microbiome, and biometric data to identify distinctive trends in a consumer’s health status to provide accurate, actionable treatments. Pinpointing these trends allows FemTec Health to deliver its unique brand of personalized products and services to match the individuality of each woman. Commenting on the acquisition, Kimon Angelides, CEO of FemTec, told Forbes, “We will have gathered information so you don’t have to see thousands of products,” “We’ll make suggestions on the things that match your biology and match your life stage.”
His quote aligns with FemTec Health’s mission to revolutionize women’s healthcare by using state-of-the-art genomics, predictive intelligence, and digital technologies to create a unified, coordinated experience and provide personalized services and products that are meaningful and effective for women. FemTec has accelerated growth and revenue by acquiring a business that aligns thematically, maximizes cross-selling, and is branded to create an integrated delivery system for women’s health.
pH Partners supports FemTec’s mission to leverage a technology-driven platform to serve and empower women. The combined companies will be well-positioned to define a new category in women’s health, wellness and personal care. We believe FemTec has developed a tech-enabled women’s self-care business that will lead women to demand more out of their health and wellness products.
pH Partners, LLC, a boutique healthcare investment bank, served as the Exclusive Financial Advisor to FemTec Health.

Founded in 2010, Birchbox redefined the way people discover and shop for beauty and grooming by pairing a monthly subscription of personalized samples with relevant content and a curated e-commerce shop. But Birchbox’s innovation wasn’t the simple concept of delivering a box of samples – it was understanding that although not everyone is passionate about beauty or grooming, everyone still deserves to have a great experience finding, trying and buying it. Engaging an overlooked, underserved consumer became the company’s secret weapon, and today it is more focused than ever on building a destination for people who aren’t obsessed with beauty and grooming.
