Cambridge Innovation Capital

Cambridge Innovation Capital (CIC) invests in intellectual property rich companies from the University of Cambridge and the wider research and business community around the Cambridge region, known as the Cambridge Cluster. CIC’s ambition is to identify, shape, nurture and inspire category leaders in rapidly growing technology sectors.

Building leading businesses requires the combination of innovative technology, talented researchers and experienced entrepreneurs. CIC unites these components to optimize each investment opportunity. Supporting such companies requires patience, and the ten-year lifespan of the typical limited liability venture capital fund has the potential to impede their ambitions. CIC, however, invests from its own balance sheet and so isn’t driven to seek a premature exit. This helps portfolio companies to flourish under CIC’s stewardship.
