Deep Science Ventures evolved out of 5 years of working with academics to shape technology to fit the market at Imperial Innovations
, the leading research commercialisation investor across the UKs 4 top universities.
During the last 5 years we have worked with scientists to build companies, from scratch, across domains from biochemistry to nano-tech. Many of those ventures have already gone on to considerable exits to the likes of Google (Hark
, now part of DeepMind Health) and Facebook (Surreal Vision
, now part of the Oculus team), whilst over 75% are continuing to grow. It's been an incredible journey, but we think there's a much bigger challenge.
Given how many people want to drive enormously ambitious change, the necessary collisions between deep scientific and commercial expertise are surprisingly rare. We left Imperial last summer to change this and we're already starting to see some incredible exciting ventures emerge
