Elena Rueda is the CEO and Co-Founder of Dama Health. 900 million people around the world use contraception, yet 80% of women report experiencing side effects that decrease their quality of life, and on average women try 4 different contraceptive methods before finding the right fit!Pretty shocking right! Elena explains why the lack of data and research in this field combined with pressures on the NHS, results in a very poor patient experience and can lead to serious side effects in women including depression, blood clots and heavy bleeding. Dama Health are fixing this broken system by applying personalised and precision medicine to contraceptive health. Their screening test identifies patient biomarkers and personal preferences, to enable better decision making between patient and clinician. They are also conduct genetic research studies to better understand how different genes react to different contraceptive methods.  Highlights:02.06: Elena’s career journey and being her friend’s contraception guru 08.34: The reasons people take contraception11.13: Different forms of contraception 13.08: The current routes (and challenges) in being prescribed contraceptives15.34: The side effects of taking the wrong form of contraception17.44: The challenges prescribers face 24.40: Dama Health and their work37.15: Dama’s genetic research studies 46.30: Getting the right funding for R&D heavy startups57.51: Meeting Davina McCall and being on Channel 4’s recent documentary  Our Host:Craig Turner.

Dan Garrett, Farewill: transforming the death industry ⚰💀📜
Dan Garrett is the CEO and Co-Founder of Farewill. For everyone, losing a loved one is one of the hardest things you’ll need to deal with. Trying to process your emotions, whilst having the pressure of deciding on funeral plans and dealing with probate. Most people end up turning to their local high street provider, who costs thousands of pounds, and they often don’t reflect the wishes of the family or deceased. Dan recognised the opportunity to innovate an industry that hasn’t changed for 100’s of years, even though everyone will need to use it at some point in their life. So Dan founded Farewill to build a tech platform that focuses on making it as easy, simple and affordable as possible for people to deal with death and provide a meaningful goodbye to their loved ones. Farewill is now the largest will writer in the UK, and one of the largest providers of probate and direct cremation services, and with a 4.9 rating on Trustpilot and multiple awards for their services – they must be doing something right!

Felix Atkin, Sharesy: supporting local spaces by getting people to put money back into their community 🏫⛪
Felix Atkin is the CEO and Founder of Sharesy. During COVID Felix started to explore why local schools weren’t renting out their unused spaces to generate much needed additional income. Most still took bookings via pen and paper, on average requiring 30 interactions before a booking was completed. This was frustrating for both the venue and the booker.Felix recognised this was a much wider problem with community spaces– church halls, scout huts, community centres – they all had unused spaces that they struggled to rent out.Enter Sharesy. In a few simple clicks, people can find and book spaces in their local community. Their unique model operates on a success only basis, so venues can sign up for free and only pay when a booking is made. Sharesy are on a mission to help local communities to thrive, by encouraging people to book local venues and put money back into their community. Highlights:02.00: Spotting the need for small schools to generate side income04.58: Community spaces struggling to rent out their spaces 07.38: The issue with existing SaaS solutions11.53: The early days of Sharesy: Angels, lockdown and raising £750k in 6 weeks20.06: Removing the barriers for venues to use Sharesy28.23: Pricing experiments and repeat bookings34.07: Funding, Angels vs VC43.02: Felix’s biggest learns as a Founder48.10: The importance of knowing what you need to hire for Our Host:Craig Turner.

Peter Briffett, Wagestream: improving financial wellbeing for frontline workers 💜🤑
Peter Briffett is the Co-Founder and CEO of Wagestream. After coming across an article about predatory finance, Peter started to explore the financial support offered to low income workers and he was shocked by the lack of fair financial services available. The common practice being pay day loan companies targeting people in need with ridiculous repayment terms. So Peter co-founded Wagestream with a vision of providing fair financial services to frontline workers, starting with flexible pay, where workers could stream their earned wages in real-time. Fast forward to today and Wagestream works with 500+ employers to help over 3 million workers to have full visibility of their pay, stream earned wages, set up automated savings and get access to financial coaching. Peter chats to me about financial wellbeing and the struggles frontline workers face, how Wagestream are solving that problem, scaling a social impact business and much more. Highlights:02.01: Peter’s journey into financial wellbeing07.30: What is financial wellbeing?09.05: The financial difficulties affecting frontline workers15.21: The employer’s role in people’s financial wellbeing19.11: Wagestream services and how they’re helping frontline workers22.53: Early stage challenges in launching the business32.16: Wagetsream’s social charter38.03: The future of Wagestream43.05: The importance of a clear mission from day oneOur Host:Craig Turner.

Charlotte Guzzo, Sano Genetics: fixing the medical research system and advancing personalised medicine 🧬
Charlotte Guzzo is the COO and Co-Founder of Sano Genetics. Whilst studying for her PhD, Charlotte witnessed first-hand the challenges with finding the right patients for medical research. After further exploration it was apparent the whole system was flawed. Due to issues with patient recruitment and engagement, 80% of clinical trials fail. This means potentially life saving drugs and treatments will never reach the market. It’s a poor situation for everyone, researchers and scientists are unable to trial new medicines, and patients are reluctant to participate in research. Sano have solved the problem by using technology to connect all these different parties in a more effective way and remove the headaches that previously existed. They enable organisations to quickly and efficiently recruit and engage the right patients, they take care of the genetic testing and data analysis, and ensure patients keep up to date with the latest research and findings. Highlights:06.49: The issues with “traditional” medical research 13.22: Sano Genetics overview and fixing the problem21.18: The barriers of operating in new countries25.43: How Sano doubled their revenue every 6 months31.53: Fundraising and Sano’s changing approach to raising39.52: The COO role in startups43.00: Parental leave and the stigma of a Founder taking time off48.09: Hiring quickly and growing responsibly53.08: Building a remote first working culture Our Host:Craig Turner.

Sam Lathey is the Co-Founder and CEO of Bippit.To use Sam’s own words, he went from being a “complete financial screw up” to becoming a “trusted financial” advisor. On this journey Sam realised that most people have no or very limited knowledge and support when it comes to managing their finances. Did you know that money is the number one cause of stress for 60% of people? Sam explains that young people receive no financial education in school, most people start their professional careers in debt and later in life fall into troubling financial situations or are unable to afford key life events like buying a house or having a child.Sam wanted to change this and give everyone access to the financial guidance they need, so he founded Bippit. Bippit work with employers to provide 1 on 1 financial coaching, helping people to better manage their money and plan for the future they want. Highlights:00.34: Sam’s mixed relationship with money04.37: The average person’s financial knowledge in the UK today06.42: Common financial problems that people face12.34: What needs to change to improve everyone’s financial wellbeing15.00: The role of the employer and why they should be providing financial coaching17.50: Bippit overview and how it works for a user 24.46: Bippit financial coach selection and matching 29.35: Challenging your assumptions and user testing34.36: Communicating the ROI on a B2B2C product45.26: Sam’s views on employee wellbeing and how to hire great people Our Host:Craig Turner.

Somayeh Taheri, UrbanChain: leading the transition to renewable energy
Somayeh Taheri is the Founder and CEO of UrbanChain. Whilst working as a research scientist on climate change and fuel poverty, Somayeh discovered that the wholesale energy market was dated and broken, with wholesalers inflating prices by up to 5x which was stopping most people moving to renewable energy.To fix this she founded UrbanChain, building a new peer to peer marketplace which was totally separate to the wholesale market. Here energy generators can sell directly to consumers, cutting out the middle party, so prices are fairer for everyone. Their clever tech helps buying and selling renewable energy to be as efficient and sustainable as possible, by matching parties based on their specific energy needs and location. This is just the beginning as Somayeh plans to expand her business into batteries, EV and smart chips.  If you’re interested renewable energy and how the energy market works, this is a must listen. Highlights:02.04: Somayeh’s shocking discovery of the UK energy market 07.06: Price inflation in the wholesale energy market 13.47: What is true “green energy”?17.06: The changes needed to shift to renewable energy 20.44: UrbanChain overview30.56: The focus on creating local energy markets39.57: Moving into EV’s, batteries and intelligent chips45.23: Somayeh’s proudest moments52.02: Focusing on indirect employmentOur Host:Craig Turner.
