Alisa (above) joins Marshall from Cambridge Enterprise, the commercialisation arm of the University of Cambridge, where she was an Investment Associate responsible for helping to secure long-term funding for academics looking to bring their research work to market.
 
Having studied both her Masters and PhD in Stem Cell Biology at Cambridge, Alisa went on to work in digital healthcare and pharmaceutical before turning her focus to start-up funding.
 
Futureworx founder Chris Walton commented: “Futureworx has been established to leverage Marshall’s unique engineering skills, experience and reputation to create new and exciting market opportunities for the future.
 
“In creating this new area of business we recognise that, to be successful, we need to create a totally new environment where our people can be imaginative, and highly focused on developing new and profitable businesses underpinned by unique and valuable products and technology.
 
“To that end, we are thrilled to have Alisa join the Futureworx team, bringing with her a wealth of relevant and valuable experience. Attracting talented people like Alisa from outside of our traditional markets will enable us to really stretch our thinking and ensure we focus on those ideas that have the biggest potential to be a force for good in the world and I am confident we are going to achieve some amazing things over the months and years ahead.”


 
Alisa, a passionate advocate for sustainability, is equally delighted to be joining the new team: “I am incredibly excited to be part of Futureworx and to have the opportunity to help shape it’s future through the development of ground-breaking technologies and climate change solutions that have the potential to be real game-changers in the market.
 
“My role here will really focus in two areas,  working hand in hand with my talented engineering colleagues to identify potential new products and technologies whilst also applying my experience in start-up funding to ensure that we are focussing our energy and investment in those areas that have the most potential in terms of both meeting the needs of our customers and generating future revenue potential for the business.”
 
When Alisa is not working she is a keen gardener, bee-keeper and marathon runner.
