From lab to marketplace

The High-Growth Spinout Programme helps researchers to take their ideas and inventions from the lab to the global marketplace by awarding funding and support.

If your team has made advances during curiosity-driven or strategic research, and your project now has serious commercial potential, then you could get help from the High-Growth Spinout Programme.

  • Heriot-Watt (6 projects)
  • Edinburgh (5 projects)
  • Strathclyde (5 projects)
  • Glasgow (3 projects)
