Making a difference

  • We have helped to build the board by introducing a non-executive chairman, a non-executive director, and a CFO

  • The non-executive chairman has significant experience of scaling life sciences focused software companies and we are working together to develop the company’s international growth strategy

  • Similarly, the non-executive director has a strong track-record of building customer success functions in growing software companies and is working closely with management as we plan for continued growth in customer numbers

  • The CFO is leading efforts to upgrade the company’s financial systems and processes, which will ensure operational scalability as the businesses expands

  • To capitalise on the company’s attractive market opportunity, we have encouraged management to invest in all functional areas of the business and headcount increased from approx 90 to >150 in the first 12 months after SEP invested

We have grown rapidly and organically since inception and are pleased to have secured SEP as investors given the firm’s considerable software and health sector experience and their record of scaling companies.
