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.
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.
