We are delighted to have been awarded the Start Up award from Medilink UK: totally unexpected, and hugely appreciated! It’s a fantastic recognition of all our hard work over the last few years, and especially during the remote and distanced working conditions of more recent months under COVID19.
Last night, we joined nearly 200 people from across the Healthcare sector at the 2020 Medilink UK National Awards. As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, the National awards took place virtually, which created a fairly strange home-based version of an awards ceremony – sitting alone at desks as the tension builds and the winners are announced.
Our category was announced first, meaning that our MD, Professor John Terry, needed to summon a speech pretty quickly, having been suddenly ported onto the main page of the conferencing software. He did us proud, thanking the team, and managing to include a mention that we’re always happy to talk to investors!
We later found out that this was the first national title by a SW based company in many years. John commented:
“I was amazed that we won, having seen the strength of competition in our category. There were some very strong contenders from all around the country.
“It’s been a real team effort and wouldn’t have been possible without the tireless work of our senior team: Chrissie Walker, Ross Parkman and my co-founder Wessel Woldman.
“We’re currently undertaking a commercial fund raise, so we can accelerate our route to market and ensure that our technologies are being used in the clinic and at home for the benefit of people with epilepsy as soon as possible.”
Medilink South West, who awarded Neuronostics with their regional title, said:
“We are delighted that Neuronostics are the winners of the highly competitive and prestigious Start Up Award at the Medilink UK Healthcare Business Awards 2020. We were blown away by the standard of their application back in February, when we awarded them the regional award in the same category. This is a huge achievement for the company and it’s great to see their continued success, after another recent achievement – a total of £870,000 in NIHR-funded AI in Health and Care Award grants for the continued development of their innovative BioEP technology.”
We were really proud to represent the south-west at these national awards, and to bring home the prize was fantastic – we’re looking forward to the next few years as we continue to scale!
