Span Health is a digital care platform that aims to help people avoid lifestyle-induced diseases, symptoms, medication, and complications. The company has helped more than 10,000 people to live a better and longer life. Span Health's easy-to-use mobile application allows patients to chat with clinicians, order blood tests at home, book video consultations, and see results in the application itself. Moreover, in 2019, the company agreed on a National Health Service (NHS) pilot test for 100 patients in collaboration with the National Institute of Health Research in North West London. Span Health will use the investment to provide employees with blood tests to screen for health risk factors and recover from detected illness safely and sustainably, improve its platform data insights, prediction and machine learning to better structure the clinician's processes, and further reduce its operational costs.

Tourniglo is a company that has come up with a unique two in one emergency tourniquet with a built-in torch. The innovation was driven by an identified need within the emergency services to provide an immediately available light source in dim-lighted areas when undertaking a patient or casualty eye examination as well as for military and close protection staff who might need to inject intravenous medication in rural areas. The global tourniquet systems market is expected to reach half a billion US dollars by 2025. The company aims to launch the production of its first product. Additionally, Tourniglo has been featured on the BBC website and has won various medals at international events, including a 'Gold Medal' at the World Invention Awards. The company requires investment to set-up manufacturing, packaging and distribution, and grow sales for the first year of commercialisation.

Imagen is a company that has developed an automated, sophisticated algorithmic technique, PredictRx, to find the right treatment for any cancer type. Imagen collects the cancer samples from a patient, grows it in its specialised growth medium, and then subjects the medium to an automated fluorescence microscopy screening to measure drug responses on live tumour cells. The company's AI-powered biobank of over 150,000 drug responses then gives the best possible cancer treatment options, allowing the company to expand in the pharmaceutical sector by satisfying its unmet demand for patient-derived cancer models. Imgen requires investment to scale its infrastructure to create the world's leading 'Biobank' of clinically relevant patient-derived cancer models whilst building the most comprehensive big data set available in cancer research.
