Endomag is a venture backed medical devices business, providing a better standard of cancer care for patients around the globe.  The incidence of cancer is growing, and with it the demand for better, faster and less expensive solutions for diagnosis and treatment. With the aim of bringing cancer care to everyone, everywhere, Endomag is developing a clinical platform that uses safe magnetic fields to power diagnostic and therapeutic devices, avoiding the safety, workflow and availability concerns of ionizing radiation. Endomag was founded in 2007 as a spin-out from University College London and the University of Houston, and is backed by investors including Draper Esprit. The company has won a number of awards including an Innovate UK SME Innovation Award, was a finalist for the prestigious MacRobert Award from the Royal Academy of Engineering (2015), and more recently was awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation.

Bailey Fisher was pleased to host the latest in its series of CFO Dinners, in partnership with Taylor Vinters and KPMG.  Guest speakers, Yael Selfin, Chief Economist at KPMG and David Slater, Director – Trade at KPMG, gave informative and stimulating talks on “Countdown to Brexit”. David gave his take on Brexit before Yael spoke about the global economic outlook, advising how this will impact on strategy.  The talks sparked lively debate amongst the assembled guests.

Highlights from the evening’s discussion were:

  • Against the backdrop of an ever-changing Brexit landscape, there was confidence overall that technology businesses will be successful despite the uncertainty.
  • The US and Asia are more important for international growth than ever before, and the technology sector is well placed as these are existing areas of focus rather than Europe.

The dinner was attended by CFOs of ambitious UK growth technology companies.

This was the latest in a series of dinners for business leaders organised and hosted by Bailey Fisher Executive Search, an independent executive search firm operating globally across the Technology, Life Sciences and Industrials sectors.
