MediSieve have recently been announced winners of the CMS Healthcare Startup of the Year Award 2017 in the Beanstalks competition. This news was announced at the GIANT Health Event, held at the Old Truman Brewery in London from 8-10 November. The prestigious award, now in its second year, was given to the startup medical company for their advances in magnetic blood filtration.
The Beanstalk Awards are a competition for startup companies with ideas, prototypes or advancements in the medical sector. The awards aim to celebrate, encourage and reward innovation within the medical sector, where entrepreneurs are making great strides towards actionable advances in technology in order to tackle some of our biggest diseases and conditions we are facing in today’s world.
Following their nomination for the TCT Magazine awards 2017 in the Healthcare Application category, the win comes as a shining example of the life-saving work MediSieve are continuing to be a part of and has instilled great confidence and pride into the heart of the company.
The award for CMS Healthcare Startup of the Year as part of the Beanstalks competition will allow MediSieve to expand their business in new and exciting ways. As a reward for winning this prestigious prize, the company is entitled to a package of legal services which are worth anything up to the value of £8,000, as kindly provided by CMS. This will be tailored to the company’s needs, and will allow them to develop in any legal area they choose, including everything from the development of new technology and patents, through to commercial contracts and share schemes. MediSieve are excited about what this will mean for their future, and for their development as a company who are passionate about bringing brilliant new ideas into the healthcare industry.
George Frodsham, founder and CEO MediSieve said: “It’s an amazing achievement and we’re all happy to have won the Beanstalks Competition Healthcare Startup of the Year award. Everyone has worked incredibly hard on our magnetic blood filtration device, and it’s great to see all that work and the future applications being recognised. We’re still working on ways to improve the device, to be able to broaden its applications and help to tackle some of the challenges that affect us all”.
The MediSieve device, an innovative medical blood-filtration device that magnetically filters particles from the bloodstream, is still undergoing extensive testing and research to be able to target the causes of specific diseases, such as sepsis and leukaemia, and is hoped to be able to improve treatments for cases of malaria.
Amir Amraie from GIANT Health Events said “our vision is to improve the health and well-being of people around the world, by promoting healthcare innovation and supporting health-tech entrepreneurs. And I believe with all and every one of you we were able to achieve this. This year we had over 100 health entrepreneurs from 18 countries applying and you are doing great work with MediSieve Limited.”
All of those who worked tirelessly on MediSieve’s product and on ensuring it becomes an established product within the healthcare industry are incredibly proud of their achievement.

Today brain diseases lack treatments and affect at least 1 in 10 people worldwide and their families. BRAINCURES, a London-based biotech startup and winner of the Beanstalks 2017 Best Mental Health Startup Award at the annual Giant Health conference, is on mission to make global policies on mental health a reality with its molecular code for brain function. The company is driven by Dr. Krzysztof Potempa, a neuroscientist and systems biologist with over 10 years of experience in decoding biology from big data in academia and industry. Showcasing its work outcomes since August 2016, BRAINCURES presented how it can transform big data into smart data and solutions that include treatments and diagnostics for brain diseases. The key to this is an ambitious biological question, the right model, and right omics data and analytical approaches that require systems thinking, multi-domain expertise and novel proprietary tools. Consequently, BRAINCURES can now help big pharma deliver precision medicine through its smart drug discovery services that are based on the code for brain function.

Crossbridge was founded to put the “science” into sports science.
Our objective is to use robust, well researched, science and technology to the benefit of athletes, coaches and sports scientists. KuduSmart is our first product, delivering a simple and effective way to measure sweat rate.
Crossbridge founder, Brian Corbett, is an enthusiastic sports person and coach (rowing, cycling and endurance running) with a long and successful history in the tech world. As a mentor with Cambridge Enterprise Seed Funds, Brian was introduced to Dr Christof Schwiening who had developed an innovative technique to measure sweating efficiency and immediately saw the potential for the technology. What could be more enticing than a tech start-up focused on the sports sector – perfect.
Christof is a neuroscientist as well as an avid endurance runner so the tech was driven by personal knowledge of the needs of endurance athletes. In fact, Christof has used his scientific insights to shave a massive 45 minutes from his marathon race time (achieving a Personal Best of 2 hours 45 minutes).
When Andrew Dunn joined the team the pieces all snapped into place. Andrew’s a software development whizz with an insatiable appetite for knowledge – a great problem solver, and very inventive. With extensive experience of developing new products and technology in a start-up environment Andrew is a key member of the founder team.
Our plan is for this to be the first of a long run of great tech ideas that will help athletes perform better, for longer.

We’re building a microphone that can zoom in on the sounds you care about, just like cameras can zoom in on the images you care about. Our microphone separates sounds coming from multiple directions to provide improved speech recognition and higher quality recordings. We do this using a bio-inspired design that directly measures the particle velocity of sound instead of its pressure.
