Why Bailey Fisher?
Cambridge-based, global outlook
We’ve spent almost 25 years embedded in the Cambridge technology cluster, building boards and leadership teams for some of the UK’s most innovative companies as they compete on the global market.
Cambridge is one of the fastest growing technology and life sciences ecosystems in the world and a magnet for deep tech. Rich in world-leading innovation, with a first-class University, Cambridge is home to a host of unicorn companies and future unicorns. Success stories include ARM, now valued at $32 billion; and CMR Surgical, which in 2021 raised $600m Series D, the largest ever med tech private funding round worldwide. And Cambridge is within an hour of London, the third biggest tech hub globally, and the epicentre of what is now being hailed as New Palo Alto.
“Bailey Fisher are a key part of the Cambridge tech ecosystem.”
“If anyone is moving to Cambridge and wants to work in the tech or life science space then they have to talk to Bailey Fisher.”
