Who we are
Cambridge Enterprise was formed by the University of Cambridge to help staff and students commercialise their expertise and ideas for the benefit of the global community.
What we do is central to the mission of the University, which for more than 800 years has contributed to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest levels of international excellence.
Formed in 2006, Cambridge Enterprise is a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Cambridge and comprises three main teams:
Our Consultancy Services team supports staff, researchers and students when they are approached for help from external organisations. The team handles the majority of communication with an organisation that can otherwise distract from the transfer of knowledge.
The Technology Transfer team works with researchers on ideas from their University research that have commercial potential. The team’s goal is to create opportunities that are attractive to external organisations that have the resources to develop and commercialise them.
Through direct investment and networking facilitation, our Seed Funds team is able to support academics and students as they build teams and raise the finances needed to develop their ideas.
We’re here to make the world a better place by helping to create a legacy of products, services and advice that benefit not just the University and the UK, but everyone.
