Co-Founder – Medical Futures

The Medical Futures Innovation Awards encourage, support and reward innovation from front line healthcare professionals. The Awards collaborate with several of the medical Royal Colleges, the Medical Research Council and the Department of Health.  Each year, hundreds of doctors pitch their ideas to a peer review panel of experts and the winners are profiled at a prestigious Awards ceremony in front of 800 key influencers in business and medicine. Applicants with ideas at concept stage are assisted to raise proof of concept funds from the Department of Health. Those with later stages ideas are introduced to investors. To date, over £100m has been raised by past winners through commercial investment or trade sales and several have gone on to become successful products and services that are now benefiting patients. This initiative began from a standing start and is now regarded as Europe’s largest showcase of early stage healthcare innovation. Medical Futures have over 100 thought leading experts sitting as Judges. Over 5000 clinicians have participated in educational events or as applicants for Awards.
