Oxford+ podcast series launches

Posted on 24 January 2024

We're excited to announce the launch of the Oxford+ podcast, hosted by Susannah de Jager and produced by Mishcon de Reya. The series will uncover the lesser-known side of Oxford, beyond its famous university, as a major hub for innovation and entrepreneurship.

First episode out now: David Ford

The first episode is now live, featuring David Ford, an Oxford-based life sciences angel investor. David manages a diverse portfolio, including AI-based drug design and machine learning in systems biology. He's also a non-executive director on a venture capital trust and Alcentra.

Upcoming episodes

Future episodes will feature:

  • Peter Crane, CEO of Caeruleus Genomics, an Oxford University life sciences spin-out.
  • Cici Muldoon, CEO of Verity Group, specializing in spectroscopic analysis of complex liquids.
  • Mark Preston, CTO of Street Drone, focusing on low-speed, hyper-local deliveries.
  • Nicholas Lyons, former Lord Mayor of the City of London with a background in investment banking.
