Experts in Conversation

VentureFest Oxford has published a new series of interviews – Experts in Conversation.  The series features Advanced Oxford’s MD, Sarah Haywood, in conversation with three leaders from across the Oxfordshire ecosystem, discussing the challenges of business development over 2020 and 2021.  They reflect on how business development activities have changed as Covid restrictions have limited travel and while conferences and events have been cancelled, postponed, or moved on-line.

Wicher Kist, CEO of electric motor developer and manufacturer Saietta; Marco Thio, Head of Business Development at biomaterials designer and manufacturer, The Electrospinning Company; and Andrew Fadden, Vice President and Head of Corporate Development at T cell/cancer biotech, Enara Bio share their experiences, lesson learned and look to the future.

The videos are available to view separately, or all three conversations together.  Link to VentureFest Oxford’s YouTube channel here
