ICURe Innovation to Commercialisation Programme

Are you interested in early-stage deep tech, biotech and medtech ventures?

At this unique showcase,  you will get exclusive access to 15 commercial projects which have graduated from SETsquared’s ground-breaking ICURe (Innovation to Commercialisation of University Research) Programme, most of which are seeking initial investments under £500k.

The ventures you will see are all at the leading-edge of science and technology and have all been through an intensive market validation process that has identified global market needs that their technologies address.

The ICURe Programme is designed to move ideas and innovation out of universities and into the marketplace. It provides academic teams with a promising commercial idea with funding and support to validate their idea with potential customers.

It’s a proven commercial springboard for university innovation having supported 342 teams which have gone on to raise £220m+ investment.

The ventures you will see at this event include:

Deep tech, Biotech and Medtech commercial research projects which are being spun out universities.

All ventures have applied for development funding through Innovate UK
