In this latest episode of the EU-Startups Podcast, we had the chance to chat with the inspiring Dr Fiona Pathiraja.
Medical doctor turned investor, Fiona is a Partner of Crista Galli Ventures, a fund that invests in Seed and Series A in European healthtech. She worked in the NHS for over 15 years and first-hand saw the need for innovation and tech-driven solutions to mounting healthcare challenges. She set out on her investment journey with a clear mission in mind: to change healthcare for the better.
Recognising that a lot of people investing in healthcare aren’t health experts and simultaneously finding that women and people of diverse backgrounds are severely underrepresented, Dr Fiona has been making an impact on multiple levels throughout her career. She is promoting healthcare innovation that is crucial for society’s health and wellbeing, she is advocating greater diversity and is actively bringing about change for good with her career.
It was a pleasure to chat with her for this podcast where we unpacked themes including the future of health, why personalization matters, and more. Tune in!
