Improving access to drugs in Development
Developing drugs to fight diseases, and getting them approved for use on patients, is a slow and complex process. By assisting with regulatory hurdles, myTomorrows streamlines the process of patients getting pre-approval access to treatments. This could potentially be life-saving for those patients who have exhausted existing approved options. Strengthened by the experience of the company’s management team, whose chief executive sold his previous business for $2.3 billion, myTomorrows is set to revolutionise an industry valued at an estimated $500 billion worldwide.
Inspiring the world to escape with luxury travel for less
Secret Escapes is a free-to-join members-only travel website, which offers luxury hotel stays and holidays at up to 60% off by selling hotel rooms that would otherwise lie empty. The deals are hand-picked by a team of travel experts and include everything from UK country house hotels and city breaks to luxury European getaways and long-haul holidays, with travel included.
Making distinctive furniture affordable
Founded in 2012, Swoon was built with the belief that great design should be accessible to everyone. On a mission to spark home obsession everywhere, they make distinctive furniture affordable by cutting out the inefficiencies of traditional retail. They take a unique approach that cuts out shops, warehouses, and middlemen. Swoon’s big innovation is to launch new designs every single day. This regular flow of new design ideas inspires their home-obsessed customers. It also lets Swoon test designs in small batches, and avoid holding lots of stock by only making the most popular pieces in large quantities.
