Pamela Walker, Gate One


Thought Leader Consultant of the Year

As a partner at Gate One, heading up the life sciences practice and start-up incubator, as well as co-founder of THENA Capital, Pamela is focused on helping healthcare businesses and entrepreneurs optimise healthcare outcomes and create transformative patient experiences.

With 20+ years’ experience in the global healthcare, pharmaceutical and medtech space, she is privileged to be able to help her clients understand and respond to industry challenges – and support the ongoing transformation of the industry – by sharing her own and others’ knowledge and expertise through meaningful and insightful thought leadership.

Most recently she has:

  • hosted her ‘Life Sciences in the Spotlight’ podcast series. Through conversations with leaders from across the industry, including clients, business founders, and renowned industry experts, she explores pressing issues and industry trends, such as fertility and the new era of biotech.
  • contributed articles to leading industry publications and appeared as guest on healthcare-related podcasts, discussing ESG and other key challenges.
  • co-founded the Future of Healthtech Hub, bringing together over 300 founders, investors and policymakers to share knowledge, information and expertise. She hosts quarterly panel discussions as part of this.
  • shared her knowledge and expertise with Gate One staff through the firm’s Incubator programme helping consultants develop their own start-up ideas and businesses.

Throughout her career, she’s been driven to solve underserved problems and support underrepresented groups, such as women’s health. She was humbled to win the 2022 UKBAA award for ‘Best Woman-Led Investment in Innovation’ for her role in supporting a fertility treatment start-up.
