Our support

We encourage academics to embrace opportunities for enterprise – providing training to help recognise and exploit intellectual property.

We’re developing focussed scale-up support for a subset of spin-outs and networking opportunities for spin-out leaders

We have an investment fund of seed capital to help spin-outs validate business models and demonstrate value to investors.

We offer funding for academics to take high-quality research projects closer to commercialisation.

We have a pool of experienced and talented business executives to match to opportunities to lead university spin-outs.

Northern Accelerator will create a sustainable change in the innovation environment through an ongoing venture fund for university spin-outs.
