Founded in 2021 by serial health tech entrepreneur Claudio D’Angelo, London-based Spex Capital already has a portfolio of six high-growth heath-tech companies. The venture firm launched with a team of sixteen, comprising seven investment team members, seven senior advisors and two venture partners. Founder and managing director Claudio D’Angelo leads the call from the Spex Capital side together with senior investment team member Filippo Falaschi.

Spex Capital aims to address the investment and funding gap which is largely overlooked by institutional and professional investors. In the words of Claudio D’Angelo: “We want to see innovative products and services being delivered for patients. Our partnership with MedCity will bring companies to potential investment and play an important role in creating a lively ecosystem, consistently with our mission to accelerate the healthcare digital revolution.” 

Leading from the MedCity side to source and evaluate viable candidates are COO Nicki Bromwich and Programme Lead Sakura Holloway. Nicki Bromwich has 30 years’ experience as a clinician in the NHS and served as Head of Commercial Development at Oxford AHSN before joining MedCity. Sakura Holloway is an IP and commercial strategist in the biotech sector with a technical background in molecular biology.

MedCity COO Nicki Bromwich views the exclusive call with Spex Capital as amplifying MedCity’s role in catalysing the growth of life science companies: “Together we are tackling one of the biggest challenges for SMEs in this sector – raising finance to support the development and acceleration of the technology into the healthcare system. MedCity will leverage the extensive experience of its team and network of peers to identify and derisk those companies that have potential to make the biggest impact on patient outcomes and the health and social care systems.”
