“We will look back upon the next ten years as the time when great healthcare became (or remained) a human right available to all through technology. After experiencing first hand the challenges – but also the huge satisfaction – in deploying technology at the coalface, I have launched TenX to ensure the best scale-ups achieve their true potential and embrace this opportunity without allowing vested interests, a lack of investment or general inertia get in the way.”

“We’ve finally got the perfect storm. Over the last decade we’ve seen a lot of exceptional talent and entrepreneurship grasping the problems in healthcare. We’ve seen sometimes simple but creative, and sometimes mind-blowing technology being developed. We have patients and healthcare professionals demanding a better way to experience and practice healthcare. And now we need the right investment and backing to bring health technologies into the mainstream.”
