Cambridge Enterprise is the commercialisation arm and technology transfer office of the University of Cambridge. We help academics and staff form and fund spin-out companies, bring new ideas to market and share University expertise with industry and government. We do this primarily through three main activities:
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.
