Our story

We started our journey at the commercialisation arm of Imperial College.

DSV’s founders have spent nearly a decade helping to launch and grow over 50 science-driven companies. The team has had five exits, including Hark (now part of Google DeepMind) and Surreal Vision (acquired by the Oculus team at Facebook). 

We’ve learnt that science venturing has become engineering: reassembling multi-disciplinary knowledge in novel and creative ways.

There is no doubt that many game changing ventures originate from university research. However, in order to create the future that we want to see, we need a much more rapid and scalable approach to solving many of our most pressing challenges.

Where are we now?

2000+ applications, 300+ interviews, 53 Founders, 3% acceptance rate, 400+ ideas explored, 19 ventures built, all in really tough areas from digitally accelerated therapeutics to brain machine interfaces, 67% chance of a founder starting a venture, 20 top tier industry partnerships, 13 patents filed and 50+ leading academics working with us to build ventures from across universities from Imperial to Stanford. Here’s how we got there.
