Cambridge has a worldwide reputation as a place where new technologies emerge, companies are born and products that transform society are developed.
Vital support for new technology ventures
Cambridge Enterprise invests the University’s seed funds in new companies started by staff and students, building a bridge between research and commercial development to the benefit of society and the economy. Cambridge Enterprise also provides advice on business planning, connections with management and links with later stage investors.
This early stage capital and support is pivotal to success of new technology companies in what is often seen as a high-risk section of the investment spectrum.
Since seed funding began in 1995 our portfolio companies have raised over £600m in further investment and grant funding. They now employ over 1,700 people and generate an annual turnover of £170m.
