What we do
OSEM has three main roles:
- Strategic: identifying opportunities to optimise the return on the University’s investment and provide professional assistance to companies as they develop
- Tactical: supporting companies by dealing with immediate or short-term issues such as funding or access to other support networks
- Procedural: dealing with documentation relating to consents, fund-raising and exits
In fulfilling this role, OSEM calls on its own expertise, its extensive networks of contacts in the financial, commercial and scientific worlds and its own investment fund which it manages on behalf of the University of Oxford.Our portfolio comprises of 84 companies, following the sale of NaturalMotion in February 2014 the portfolio is currently valued at over £80 million (December 2016).
