in support of the entrepreneurial spirit
Our 12 pillars of entrepreneurial support provide a complete range of university support services to enable institutions to create an environment for students and staff where scalable enterprise can flourish. From initial concept formation, through to securing first clients and growth investment; universities can choose which of our pillars they need to compliment internal teams and resources.
who have scalable enterprise ideas which can be grown into
Founders Andrei and Vlad Feraru, along with team specialists Melissa Davy-Ericson and Gabriel Arnautu have been working with Coventry University’s IP & Commercialisation department to prototype a wearable health and safety technology designed for the Global Manufacturing industry. Prototyping now complete, Feraru Dynamics have received initial seed investment for on-site environmental testing of their product which is underway in collaboration with a world leading, brand-recognised manufacturer. In June 2019, Feraru Dynamics will be seeking first round investment of £375,000 (£120,000 SEIS still available). A campus-led crowdfunding campaign is planned for June 2019 though the founders would be very pleased to share early details of this opportunity with those VC and PE funds that have a portfolio or exit history in health and safety products or in technical product manufacturing for B2B Global supply. Please Contact Coventry University’s IP & Commercialisation department for further details.

higher investment values for university enterprise
Through our Frameworks, even if your students have limited entrepreneurial experience we help them, through your institution, form and create scalable enterprise with higher levels of investment, ranging from £150,000 - £1m. We work with Students and staff to help them become better problem solvers and form enterprise concepts at scale. Skills, knowledge, industry credibility, legal & tax advice, board members and finance naturally form around a good business idea and we find those ideas and nurture them through to successful investment and sustainable growth..
