The Bessemer Society Fellowship Award Dinner

November 2018


HGF is proud to sponsor 'The Bessemer Society Fellowship Award Dinner 2018' at the Armourers and Brasiers Hall, London on Tuesday, 20th November 2018.

Dr Harry Destecroix, the founder and former CEO of Ziylo Ltd, will receive the award for his entrepreneurial qualities and his notable success in achieving one of the largest early exits of a spinout company in the UK.  Dr Andrew Wells and his team at HGF worked closely with Harry to protect Ziylo’s core glucose binding molecule technology.  In addition, Andrew and his team helped Ziylo successfully navigate their way through an in-depth IP due diligence process.  For this reason, and in recognition of Harry’s achievements, we are proud to sponsor ‘'The Bessemer Society Fellowship Award Dinner'. 

The Bessemer Fellowship Award celebrates an entrepreneur who in view of the Society's Council Members exhibits most clearly the qualities and attributes that constitute the 'Bessemer spirit' - a determination to translate technical innovation into a globally successful commercial product, which generates wealth for society.
