We know that Research & Development (R&D) and innovation activities are essential for businesses that are looking to compete, grow and succeed and that companies invest in R&D and innovation during the good economic times. Why is investment in R&D …
Hemaxi’s passion for supporting businesses to succeed goes back a long way. The reason - she likes seeing their fabulous accomplishments as they grow and develop their businesses and individual abilities.
She could see the challenges that innovative organisations were facing in finding funding and investment to support them with R&D, commercialisation and thereafter, so she has been lucky enough to combine her financial background of over 20 years, working for NatWest and Royal Bank of Scotland together with working closely on Government funded grant and loan support programmes for businesses, to help those organisations with their routes to success. She mentions that she has marvelled at the R&D and innovations happening in a range of organisations from automotive, aerospace, healthcare, manufacturing sectors which possibly would not succeed without the external support available to them. Her current position as Programme Lead, Innovation Loans at Innovate UK fits in so well with her ethos of supporting innovative business.
