Mirada Medical Winner of Martin and Audrey Wood Enterprise Awards

Mirada Medical received the Martin & Audrey Wood Enterprise Awards Overall Winner 2011 at Venturefest this year. David McCabe, senior software engineer at Mirada Medical received the Overall Winner Award from Sir Martin and Lady Audrey Wood. Mirada was also The Winner of the Medical Devices and Healthcare Technologies Award. Over 120 representatives from the business, technology, research and investment communities in Oxfordshire and beyond gathered at the Ashmolean Museum last night to hear the announcement of the winners of the Martin and Audrey Wood Enterprise Awards 2011. These prestigious Awards celebrate innovative and technology-based companies in the region, and were established in honour of Sir Martin and Lady Audrey Wood, co-founders of Oxford Instruments plc. The Woods grew Oxford Instruments from a start-up in 1959, which was Oxford University’s first spin-out company, into a global instrumentation business. The finalists spent the day exhibiting at Venturefest, one of the premier business events in the southeast, before they each delivered a three minute presentation to an audience and panel of expert judges. Following the judging panel’s deliberations, the category winners were announced during a champagne reception. Don McLaverty is joint managing director of the Innovation Services division at Oxford Innovation, which organises the Awards. He said: “We congratulate the Winners of the Martin & Audrey Wood Enterprise Awards 2011, who were selected from a range of very high quality entries. We would also like to acknowledge the achievements of everyone who entered these Awards, which showcased a wealth of innovation and entrepreneurial talent in companies and individuals in Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley.” The Martin & Audrey Wood Enterprise Awards 2011 were supported by B4 Magazine, Connections @ Trafalgar Square, HR Advantage, One Ltd, Oxford Investment Opportunity Network and Right Angle Consultants.   The Winners of the Martin & Audrey Wood Enterprise Awards 2011 with Sir Martin and Lady Audrey Wood
