Company profile

Part of the University of Cambridge, Cambridge Enterprise supports academics, researchers, staff and students in achieving knowledge transfer and research impact. We do this by helping innovators, experts and entrepreneurs use commercial avenues to develop their ideas and expertise for the benefit of society, the economy, themselves and the University.

Integral to our commercialisation activities are our relationships with external organisations. We act as a bridge between University members and industry, investors, public bodies and charities seeking to tap the expertise, inventions, technologies and intellectual property available from the University of Cambridge.

Consultancy contract services

We facilitate a professional consultancy service which enables the University to share its knowledge with government, industry, and the public sector, to drive change and make a direct impact on society. We work with both academic and external partners to ensure project expectations are understood and all parties protected. While we work primarily with researchers who have already been contacted by potential consultancy clients, we are happy to use our networks and experience to help organisations find a consultant.

Licensing opportunities

We facilitate licence agreements for the wide range of technologies and research tools that are ready for commercialisation. Current opportunities can be found on our website. You are also welcome to contact us to discuss your individual requirements and specific areas of interest.

Investment opportunities

Cambridge Enterprise invests the University’s seed funds in new companies started by academics, researchers, 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 many opportunities to invest in the Cambridge Cluster, and we are always looking to speak with venture capital firms, business angel networks and other investors looking to invest in early-stage opportunities.

Experts & mentors programme

The Cambridge Enterprise Experts & Mentors Programme is for experienced entrepreneurs and professionals who want to share their expertise and knowledge by supporting University members on their commercialisation journeys. Practical insight into the commercial landscape gives staff and students the confidence to drive their ideas forward, increasing their chances of creating a positive impact on society.
