Oxford+ Podcast

Welcome to the official Oxford+ podcast series, brought to you by Mishcon de Reya and hosted by Susannah de Jager.

Most famous for its university, Oxford is an underestimated hub for innovation. This podcast series explores the people, technologies, companies and sources of funding which sit beneath Oxford's rich history and world-renowned universities. By sharing these conversations and insights into what makes them special, we hope to demystify Oxford's investment ecosystem and explore its unique potential.

Join us as we celebrate the untold stories and explore some of the opportunities, challenges, and transformative ideas that make Oxford a formidable location for start-ups and those that invest in them.
