Welcome to the third full year of the delivery phase of UCL’s enterprise strategy. As anticipated, our community continues to strive for excellence and that approach and commitment is clearly working. From working with corporations to assisting student entrepreneurs and spinning out research, We hope that you will enjoy reading about all our enterprise activities from across the university in this Annual Review for 2013/2014.

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.
