Lomax (Max) Ward is a co-founder of Luminous Ventures in London where he invests in deep tech. Max was previously a healthcare and life science investor at White Cloud Capital, making venture and growth capital investments in Europe and Asia across a range of indications, technologies and services. Having graduated from the University of Cambridge, Max started out as a corporate lawyer at Slaughter and May in London, Milan and Tokyo, sitting in the TMT and IP group. There he worked on, among other things, technology IPOs and M&A, giving him a taste for the commercial and investment side. His experience in intellectual property and regulation is particularly useful for the deep technology companies in which Luminous invests. Outside of the office, Max is often to be found trail running in the mountains or (where he can't get away) the Surrey Hills.
