Welcome to British Innovation

The British Innovation Fund

Despite British universities being consistently high in global rankings, Britain has historically struggled to raise sufficient capital to commercialise its world-class research. The British Innovation Fund supplies capital to support early stage spin out companies forming as a result of this research. The Fund invests into leading British University commercialisation companies and spin out companies emanating from these Universities.


The British Innovation Fund recognises the world-class science and technology development that is being carried out in many of Britain’s top universities. The Fund nurtures impactful, early-stage companies – helping them reach their full potential and guiding them to world-wide recognition and success.


The Fund carefully picks spin out companies from the established, in-house university commercialisation companies which the Fund has invested in – spin out companies that demonstrate a viable commercial business and are already generating revenue. This significantly reduces investment risks and enhances the probability of outsized returns for investors.


1) The academics at the universities will bring promising IP and commercially reliable ideas to the attention of the university commercialisation company.
2) The eyes and ears of the experienced technologists and venture capitalists at the commercialisation company view these ideas and invest into the most promising opportunities.
3) The investment advisory committee of the British Innovation Fund assesses the recommendations of the commercialisation companies before deploying capital.

Core-Power Interview


CORE-POWER is spearheading the development of the world’s first 2-fuel Thorium powered marine engines through an exclusive and perpetual license for technology developed by its US partners and the National Labs in the US. The game-changing technology offers safe and sustainable power with zero climate gas emissions and has a $1 billion revenue potential at just 5% market penetration. The market potential is $1 trillion plus. This new Thorium technology is also set to reduce the energy costs of commercial shipping by 5x (compared to fossil fuels) over the lifetime of a vessel (20 years) at a time when environmental regulations will mandate shipping to cut emissions and ‘de-carbonize’ propulsion. Thorium is the Super-fuel of the future for global shipping.

Can Thorium End our Energy Crisis?
