Global impact

Midlands Mindforge is an ambitious patient capital investment company, co-founded by eight research-intensive universities in the Midlands – Aston, Birmingham, Cranfield, Keele, Leicester, Loughborough, Nottingham and Warwick.

Our mission is to accelerate and enhance the commercialisation of ground-breaking science and technology innovations from the eight universities and the Midlands region.

By providing capital and company-building skills to university spinouts and early-stage IP rich businesses in the Midlands, we will build the foundations of a new technology eco-system in the region and create companies that can drive economic growth whilst delivering real-world impact.

Midlands Mindforge is an independent company that aims to raise up to £250m from strategic corporate partners, institutional investors and qualifying individuals.

We aim to “invest with impact” to found and scale transformational science backed companies in sectors such as Clean Technologies, AI & Computational Science, Life Sciences & Health Tech, to create highly skilled jobs and support the UK’s ambition to become a science and technology superpower.
