The fledgling industries emerging from our universities

Science and engineering departments are innovation incubators, and regularly launch companies involved in a wide range of exciting new fields. Dr Mike Tubbs explains how to invest in spin-outs.

Direct spin-outs such as Oxford Instruments receive funding for the early stages of development from one or more of the university, the staff’s friends and family, or angel investors.
