PiR supports NEC recruitment for start-up imaging company focussed in neurological disease

Job Title: Non Executive Chair

Client Profile:

A start-up imaging company spun out of an academic institution focussed in the neurological space.

Role Requirements:

  • An “investible” track record as a Chair, CEO or senior level executive gained within the life science sector, specifically technology, medtech or imaging
  • Established relationships with early stage investors and institutions
  • Comfortable in an early stage company where infrastructure and support are minimal
  • Significant industry experience with a comprehensive network of contacts across early stage, SME and corporate medtech/imaging organisations
  • A visionary who can understand the value that disruptive technology, particularly AI and machine learning, can unlock within healthcare applications.

Role Scope:

It became apparent from initial fund-raising discussions that for the Company to secure a £2-3m Series A funding round, it would be advantageous to have secured the services of an experienced Chair. The individual being sought would support the CEO in the fund-raising process and more broadly work with the founders and wider team to develop a strategy that maximises the likelihood of the company achieving long term growth and success.
