Fixing Dad is an international health engagement organisation that works with organisations and policymakers to help inspire patients, consumers, and citizens to engage with their health. It produces content across a wide variety of health arenas to help inspire, engage, manage, and reverse a range of conditions, including diabetes, obesity, heart disease, mental illness, cardiovascular disease, respiratory illnesses, heart failure, and some forms of cancer.
The international TV production company has worked with organisations, including AstraZeneca, Novartis, NHS (National Health Service) England, BBC, RTL, Nestlé Health Science, Diabetes UK, Swiss Reinsurance, and many others.
All of these diverse tech startups have been through London & Partners’ Business Growth Programme, a free 3-month accelerator programme that helps London-based startups grow in the capital.
Of the 1200 businesses that the Business Growth Programme has helped since its inception, nearly one-third of the founders were female-led and more than one-quarter of the founders were from underrepresented backgrounds. A sample of some of their most innovative members revealed they had created more than 300 jobs and raised more than £141 million in funding.
