Opportunities to invest

Cambridge has a worldwide reputation as a place where new technologies emerge, companies are born and products that transform society are developed. Cambridge Enterprise invests the University’s seed funds in new companies started by staff and students, building a bridge between research and commercial development.

Early stage capital and support is pivotal to the success of new technology companies in what is often seen as a high-risk section of the investment spectrum. There are opportunities to invest.

Since seed funding began in 1995, our portfolio companies have raised more than £1.6 billion in further investment and grant funding. These companies now employ over 1,000 people and are developing solutions in many areas including healthcare, clean energy and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). More information about current University of Cambridge originated companies can be found on the Cambridge Cluster map.

Cambridge Enterprise Venture Partners

Through Cambridge Enterprise Venture Partners (CEVP), investors have the opportunity to hear pitches from investment-ready Cambridge companies, followed by dinner at one of the Cambridge Colleges.

CEVP is Cambridge Enterprise’s investor forum to showcase companies to an audience of venture capitalists and business angels. We host three dinners a year, normally within one of the historic Cambridge Colleges.
