How does it work?
We build close, long-term relationships with Launchpad partners, creating the ideal conditions for lasting success.
For you, this means access to world-class talent and facilities, networks, and venture studio support. In this way, innovations are de-risked while products, services and systems are shaped.
We build partnerships with organisations that are looking for talent or access to the UK/European markets, with the capability to make significant investments.
Work is collaborative and success is shared; companies are co-created by our candidates, the University and Launchpad partners. For this reason, engaged partners that see opportunities in the newly created companies are invited to join Launchpad in incorporation and early equity investment. This means that your involvement could ultimately continue into the newly formed venture, with all the pay-off that this brings.
