The creation of spin-out companies is the conventional route for taking innovative new technologies to the marketplace. We support early-stage ventures by working with academic researchers to develop a business plan to get the business ready to raise the investment needed to take the venture forward. We are also very keen to support non-conventional opportunities in non-technical fields through the creation of not-for-profit ventures and social enterprises.
