Invest in a company linked to the University

The University has successfully spun out a number of companies based on our research.

We work closely with Angel investors, our Alumni and IP Group PLC to provide early seed funding for new companies.

We are always interested in hearing from individuals or companies who invest in early-stage companies and would like to know more about opportunities from the University.
