Described by a London daily this July as a ‘unicorn-hunter’, Suranga Chandratillake hit the headlines in 2018 after Balderton Capital raised £9.1 million in funding for Healx, a Cambridge-based medtech start-up that uses artificial intelligence to find new and potentially life-saving uses for existing drugs. Chandratillake said, ‘The future of medicine will focus on what is different about everyone, personalising treatment and taking the individual into context.’ It’s the same rationale he applies to spotting and backing the rare ideas that can overturn entire industries. Watch out for more unicorn-hunting headlines from the Cambridge-educated partner at Balderton following past success with Revolut, Betfair, Bebo and Citymapper.
