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 Cambridgebased medtech start-up using artificial intelligence to find new, 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 rare ideas that can overturn entire industries. Watch for more unicorn-hunting headlines involving the Cambridgeeducated partner, following his past successes with Revolut, Betfair, Bebo and Citymapper.
