We define social ventures as businesses that:
At UCLB we’re interested in impact. Sometimes innovations don’t make money but do have great outcomes that benefit society. If your research has the potential to make a difference to people’s lives, tackle environmental issues or meet community needs, we should be talking.
Social ventures benefit UCL researchers, the university and wider world:
UCLB is proud to have pioneered technology transfer for social ventures. We were the first technology transfer office to appoint a dedicated business manager.
We offer social entrepreneurs a comprehensive service to take you from idea to social impact. We can:
UCL staff and researchers can apply for up to £20k POC funding and support to develop an entrepreneurial solution to a social problem.
Your product or service must have been developed through UCL research or involve UCL IP, and the project must be able to create social impact and have a clear plan for progression beyond the period of the award.
