Event details

Novosound are the first spin out from the University of the West of Scotland. They are a Scottish-based sensors business, manufacturing ultrasound sensors for the industrial, medical and wearable markets. Dave's talk will discuss how the business changed when he moved from his initial Chief Technology officer role to that of CEO in November 2020, and the subsequent pivot which has grown the company significantly over the last 12 months. He’ll tell us about his learnings as a recovering academic, a first-time founder of a global business, raising investment, and all with a bit of brutal honesty!

Dr Dave Hughes founded Novosound in April 2018 and is the inventor of their core IP and orchestrator of the company's vision. Dave has developed from an academic to a high-growth entrepreneur, overseeing the technical direction and vision of the company. Under Dave’s leadership, Novosound has grown rapidly to become an award-winning global business, working across a wide range of diverse sectors including industrial, medical, and wearable markets.
