Dr Bea Bakshi
CEO & Co-Founder - C the Signs
Dr Bea Bakshi is the Co-Founder and CEO of C the Signs – a clinical platform that uses AI to accelerate early cancer detection. She’s an advocate for tackling inequalities among marginalised communities who may be overlooked when it comes to cancer diagnosis and care – dedicated to giving everyone the opportunity to survive cancer.
Before founding C the Signs, Bea drove the digital transformation of the NHS by serving as Deputy IT Lead and a champion for healthcare workers' rights leading negotiations for a £3.2bn contract for doctors across the UK.
In 2021, she was selected by the Obama Foundation to be an Obama Leader Fellow, shaping the debate on inequalities around the world. The same year, she was recognised as one of the Top 50 Women in Tech in the UK by InspiringFifty, an initiative run by EQL:HER.
