OSI (Oxford Sciences Innovation)

An investment company founded in 2015 that specializes in spin-outs from Oxford University’s Math, Physical, Life Sciences, Medical Sciences, Computer Sciences and Engineering divisions. OSI supplies financial and human capital to help market ideas.

OSI helps researchers write business plans, create pitches, recruit the board and set up a company. Investments from OSI span transition, seed and follow-on funding and range from £100,000 to £10M. OSI works with academics, Oxford University and entrepreneurs to create an ecosystem that supports the success of spinouts. 



OSI is different from venture capitalists because it has a company structure rather than a fund structure which allows permanent capital and the patience needed to let investments mature. Spinouts may also have access to future capital.
