We invest in spin-outs with a market focus



We utilise a suite of enterprise programmes to define your business model and find product / market fit at an early stage. These include the Lean Launch Programme and ICURe. 

They have been tailored to help IP based spin–outs connect with customers and R&D partners early in the journey.



We invest between £50k and £150k into spin–out companies with novel technology and sound business models, ideally having graduated from the enterprise programmes.

We require you to have SEIS Advance Assurance for us to invest. 



We help companies to transition from research to commercial success as efficiently as possible. 

We are experienced in technology transfer and can provide advice to smooth and accelerate the spin–out process.

What does QUBIS Innovation Fund invest in?

The QUBIS Innovation Fund invests in spin outs that have performed intense customer discovery and determine their product / market fit or see some early traction. We understand the importance of listening to potential customers and partners early on and refining the business model to suit. We are experienced in the commercialisation of university research and can help accelerate the journey from spin out to growth stage utilising lean startup principles.
