J A Kemp is supporting the first Bessemer Society dinner at Rhodes House in Oxford on 11 July.
The Bessemer Society is a new forum made up of ‘serial’ CEOs, founders and entrepreneurs who are committed to creating successful new companies based on technological innovation in the fields of science and engineering.
Named after Sir Henry Bessemer, the Society aims to promote his distinctive blend of technical, creative and entrepreneurial skills.
The objective of the evening is to bring together leading figures from science and technology manufacturing companies based in the Oxford area in a collegial atmosphere to discuss areas of mutual interest including their successes and the challenges facing their business. The evening is expected to attract more than 40 delegates, including a large number of J A Kemp clients and two J A Kemp partners, Dominic Forsythe and Ben Mooneapillay.
The event will feature presentations from Dr Gordon Sanghera, CEO and co-founder of Oxford Nanopore Technologies Ltd, Prof Peter Dobson, doyen of the Oxford University spinout scene, and Martin Fiennes, a principal of Oxford Sciences Innovation, the patient capital fund management company.
