Onyx Health are delighted to announce their inclusion in the 2023 E2E Female 100 list in association with The Independent and in partnership with IWG plc as the strategic founding partner. The list, which was independently verified by data from Experian and Go Live Data, celebrates the most influential, fastest growing and highest performing female-led businesses in the UK.

Celebrating women in business throughout a host of sectors, E2E 100 is a significant initiative designed to showcase the very best UK companies that are excelling, experiencing consistent growth, and presenting disruptive business strategies, creating an impact not just in their own sector, but also on a nationwide and in some cases a global scale.

Looking at the company’s consistent growth of employees over a period of three years, Experian and Go Live Data have pulled the data from across the entire UK to crown the top 100 women.

Conceived by Karen Winterhalter and based in Newcastle (North East England), Onyx Health specialise in pharmaceutical, life sciences, and medical technology marketing and communications. Fusing medical science with creativity, Onyx Health works globally with start-ups, growing organisations and established companies to deliver digitally forward omnichannel campaigns.

Karen Winterhalter said: “In the past ten years, since Onyx Health launched in the North East, we have successfully helped to launch start-ups and propel small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). It now works with some of the fastest-growing, and most renowned pharma and medical technology organisations in the industry.

I’m thrilled that our hard work and business success has gained recognition as a part of E2E Female 100 as a women-led business. This not only an outstanding achievement for us as an agency but, as a North-East based business, it demonstrates the major contribution the region is making to the economy, particularly within the healthcare, life sciences and pharmaceuticals sector.

Our rapid growth across the past few years, despite the backdrop of covid, is a credit to our team, and the trust of our clients, who appreciate our personal service as a boutique agency and have provided us with a platform to apply our creativity and knowledge launch new products globally and in the UK.”

Speaking about the E2E Female 100 in association with The Independent, Shalini Khemka CBE and founder of E2E said:  “To see so many extraordinary multigenerational women in the top 100 from a host of innovative sectors is a testament to the amazing work so many women are achieving, daily. From vegan kitchens to finance and leadership, the diverse range of businesses which have not only been founded survived or thrived during the pandemic is incredible. Each and every person on this list should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved and will continue to achieve in the years to come.”

Assistant Editor of the Independent, Caroline Gammell said: “We’re delighted to be featuring such an exceptional group of women who are powerhouses in their own individual sectors and who have seen exceptional growth over the past three years.

The E2E Female 100, in association with The Independent, gives us the chance to showcase the amazing female talent around the UK and to inspire the next generation of female entrepreneurs, who are a much-needed part of our future economy. We can’t wait to see what they do next and are looking forward to championing female leaders for many more years to come.”

Lord Bilimoria CBE, DL, Founding Board Director, E2E said:  “Since the launch of E2E in 2011, Shalini and her team have built an exceptional platform for entrepreneurs to meet, learn, raise investment, and access corporate support. I am thrilled that E2E has launched the E2E 100, beginning with The Female 100 as it showcases the fastest growing female led companies by employee growth, from all over the UK.

I was reading an article from Reuters recently which highlighted that women now make up 40% of boards at the top UK companies for the first time in history and that the number of female CEOs is also rising. This is highly encouraging however we are still far from parity.”
