Octopus Ventures, part of Octopus Group and one of the largest and most active VCs in Europe, is looking to launch a new GBP100 million institutional global fund to take advantage of current healthtech market opportunities.

In this week’s Private Equity Wire podcast Karin Wasteson interviews partner Joe Stringer, who shares his views on trends in the healthtech space during the past year, and some of the sector’s key challenges and opportunities moving forward.

Stringer, who joined Octopus Ventures from TenX Health at the end of January, was formerly a founding member of EY Ventures, heading up the health and social care portfolio.
