A graduate of UCL, Tim began his professional life as a business consultant with a ‘big five’ firm in London. He has worked as an investment manager at a pan-European investment firm that specialised in early-stage technology ventures, initiating the firm’s university liaison programme, which included members from across Europe. Prior to Advances, he spent six years running his own business, which helped universities and large corporations – including UCL, the BBC and Reuters – to spin-out high technology companies.
Tim joined UCL Advances in August 2007 to
lead the department from launch. Since then, it has grown from a four to 20
person unit and has raised over £6 million from funding bodies and other
corporate partners, including the Higher Education Council for England (HEFCE)
and European Union ERDF.
