Company Creation

There are opportunities for investment, partnership and leadership roles with the new companies we create each year.

Our Company Creation

We support and facilitate the creation of high-tech, innovative companies. We identify and "spin out" commercial and not-for-profit activities from our world class research.

You might be interested in investing or partnering with one of our companies. Or you might want to join as an experienced executive who can support a company's growth. If you're an investor, an adviser or an academic and interested in working with us and our portfolio of companies, please get in touch


Spin out companies

We have an excellent track record for producing spin-out companies from applied research. We also play a significant role in the development of new products and services.

Our spin out companies contribute to the development and vitality of the region through new jobs and revenue creation.

We want to attract ambitious, experienced, and well-networked business executives to early-stage ventures. We offer remuneration and equity. We are particularly looking for executives with experience in deep tech life sciences and engineering.
