OvaPal Wins Seventh Annual San Diego Tech Coast Angels Quick Pitch Competition

Wearable, Bluetooth™ Device Transmits and Analyzes Fertility Data, Accessible via Mobile App, for Convenient Family Planning

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 3, 2013) - OvaPal, Inc. today announced it has won the San Diego Tech Coast Angels 2013 Quick Pitch competition. The first wearable basal thermometer that wirelessly transmits and analyzes data accessible via fertility-tracking mobile app, conveniently and effectively letting a woman know when she is most likely to achieve pregnancy.

"OvaPal wants to help the millions of women who are trying to get pregnant each year in the US alone, and we are grateful for the opportunity to receive attention from an audience of local, experienced investors and board members, thanks to Tech Coast Angels," said Giovanna Sheidler, co-founder and CEO. "These days, women have specific, personal desires on when they would like to be pregnant and care for a child. We are happy to help them do so when it is right for them. We are thrilled and honored for the monetary reward from the John G. Watson Foundation, which will help us bring OvaPal to market to help women everywhere."

Comprised of a small, inconspicuous, wearable and waterproof patch, OvaPal harnesses reproductive science and prediction algorithms for fertility tracking right on a mobile device. Its availability will provide a stress-free way to easily and comfortably boost the likelihood of conception, quickly and naturally. The OvaPal patch is worn continuously on a woman's body for up to seven days at a time, and doesn't require charging. The patch is automatically synced to a mobile device and a user follows a calendar to see her peak fertility window. Couples can share peak fertility day information for easy, convenient planning.

"The primary objective for the Quick Pitch is to foster the entrepreneurial spirit and promote investment opportunities," said Linda Wells, executive director, Tech Coast Angels. "We had several impressive applicants this year, and found OvaPal a very promising company with an innovative product we think will make a substantial contribution to modern healthcare."
