Working at IP Group

IP Group is all about evolving great ideas into world changing businesses. Our team is passionate about seeking out exciting new technologies and building great businesses based on intellectual property, mainly from our partner universities.

We pioneered the concept of the long-term partnership model with UK universities and have spent many years honing a unique approach to building businesses and providing support along the journey from “cradle to maturity”. We have a strong track record of success and our portfolio comprises holdings in over 90 early-stage to mature businesses across four main sectors -- Biotech, Cleantech, Healthcare and Technology.

Our principles shine through in our team:

  • Passionate about building great businesses
  • Pioneering approach; open-minded and able to adapt to constant change
  • Principled decision-making even when the right answer is not the easy answer

Building successful businesses takes not only time but also a range of disciplines and our team benefits from a broad range of skills from PhD scientists with commercial experience to lawyers, financiers, client facing administrative support and back office support.
