Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Initial searches for information regarding innovative products, consumer reviews, and trends for the femtech industry proved that there is a significant amount of info available. As a result, we suggest a total of 5 projects to reach all of your goals. We first suggest moving forward with one project to analyze current trends in the U.S. femtech industry related to popular product types, industry growth, and trending visions for brands. We also suggest a second and third project to analyze how consumers in the U.S. and U.K. think about the Clearblue brand. This would involve a separate request for each geographic area. A fourth project is recommended in order to address trends for male fertility products, which will include an analysis of any popular product types, new fertility products arising, use cases, and marketing ideas. We recommend a fifth and final project to identify and detail a list of 5-7 of the most popular and innovative products in the femtech market today. For each product we identify, we can include who the company/brand is, what the product is, who the product is for, and why it is innovative.
As an alternative, we suggest moving forward with one project to analyze trends in the U.S. femtech industry, as well as one to analyze consumer thoughts from EITHER the U.S. or U.K. on Clearblue, and a third request to address trends in male fertility products.
