Join us on the 25th April for our second Lunch&Learn of the month when Ash Patel from Mercia Fund will be joining us to share his insights on what a health tech VC is looking for and how to get investment ready.

Additionally, he advises on relevant transactions across the Group's funds and serves as a non-executive director to portfolio companies applying a broad range of technologies to solve problems in human health.
