We’re leaders in commercialisation

At UniServices, we’ve been bringing ideas to life for more than 30 years. We’ve invested in more than 65 companies and licensed over 480 patent families. At the end of 2022, the total market capitalisation of the companies we’ve helped form was more than $1.25 billion. We’ve delivered more than a fourfold return so far on the money we’ve invested through the University of ƵInventors’ Fund.
