Industry and investors
Looking for a world-changing idea to invest in?
Do you want to invest in a de-risked, investment-ready life science project with life changing potential?
We work with venture capitalists, companies and angel investors seeking new biomedical technologies for industrial licensing or spin outs.
But, unlike a technology transfer office, we offer world-class technologies already externally validated for development.
We identify commercially compelling projects
We have access to over 1,500 life science investigators and researchers in King's College London and King's Health Partners Hospital Trusts, with external grants worth circa £250m already awarded. Every year, we invite them to submit ideas in Therapeutics, Diagnostics, Medical Devices and Digital Health with excellent clinical and market potential.
Our King’s Health Accelerator funds up to £150,000 p.a. per project to ensure each one becomes investor- and industry-ready.
Our peer-reviewed triage process identifies the most promising submissions based on having:
- a clear unmet clinical need
- a high utility value when clinically implemented
- high market attractiveness based on size, growth and addressability
- a clear development path to transaction, preferably within two years
- at least one filed patent application to protect the technology.
We turn innovative ideas into reality
We understand the issues relevant to your business and how to align with your requirements.
We work with successful applicants to accelerate their projects to a point of maturity - and be ripe for investment. They receive ongoing guidance from an experienced KCI commercial portfolio manager and support from senior industry experts.
