Oxford’s entrepreneurs come together to celebrate technological innovation within the region

Published on: 12/07/2017

The first Bessemer Society dinner in Oxford will take place on July 11th at Rhodes House.

The Bessemer Society is a forum and mutual society formed of ‘serial’ CEOs, founders and entrepreneurs who are committed to creating successful new companies based on technological innovation in the fields of science and engineering. Named after Sir Henry Bessemer, the Society aims to promote his blend of technical, creative and entrepreneurial skills that are the catalyst for founding any progressive and lasting enterprise.

The founding members share a profound belief in the value of manufacturing and manufacturing technologies to produce wealth and lasting good for society.

The dinner has been organised by Alex Stewart, founder of the Bessemer Society and great-great grandson of Sir Henry Bessemer.

The objective of the evening, which is supported by Oxford University Innovation, Oxford Sciences Innovation and the Harwell Campus, is to draw together Oxford science and technology manufacturing companies in a collegiate atmosphere where they can recognize their strengths and discuss their needs. It will be attended by more than 40 delegates and will feature inspirational presentations from Dr Gordon Sanghera, CEO and co-founder of Oxford Nanopore Ltd, Prof Peter Dobson, doyen of the Oxford University spinout scene, and Martin Fiennes, a principal of Oxford Sciences Innovation, the patient capital fund management company.

The event is sponsored by the Accountants Wellers, Grant Thornton, Commercial Lawyers Royds Withy King and Patent Law firm JA Kemp.
