From Sarah Haywood, Chief Operating Officer of MedCity
Although I know many of you already through my previous ‘unofficial’ work with MedCity, it’s a pleasure to say hello and introduce myself as the newly appointed Chief Operating Officer. I’m really proud of what we have achieved in the comparatively short time since our April launch, and the support and enthusiasm of our friends has been instrumental in getting us up and running so quickly, so huge thanks to you all.
There is a tangible sense of growing confidence across the life sciences sector, and we have big ambitions for 2015. This will include building on our work to promote innovation, entrepreneurship and investment in the sector and support businesses to set up operations here. Over the next few months we will be developing our communications materials, including the website, and I look forward to sharing our plans with you.
Finally, a reminder that our Angels in MedCity events for potential investors and investment-ready companies are continuing in January and February, so please join us and/or share through your networks. We are particularly keen to meet people who might be considering angel investment and we also want to work with people within the sector who could become lead angels in the future.
In the meantime, though, I wish you a happy and relaxing festive break from all at MedCity.
