Entrepreneurship and spin-outs

Entrepreneurship and spin-outs

The University actively supports entrepreneurs and academic staff in the creation of new ventures to lead the exploitation of research generated opportunities. This support ranges from licensing IP to start-ups to directly supporting the planning/ formation of a spin-out venture. Since 2006, the University has had a partnership with leading early-stage investor, IP Group plc, who provide expertise in company creation and access to investment.
