Over the past decade and more, UKI2S has built a substantial track record; over 60 portfolio companies created that between them have attracted over £600m of later-stage investment and now have a combined market value of over £1bn. We aim to support innovation to flourish and in turn, boost the UK’s competitiveness and productivity by commercialising key technological advances in industrial biotech, ag tech, healthcare, medicine, clean energy, materials, artificial intelligence, software and space.
UKI2S is independently managed by specialist venture capital firm Midven, now part of the Future Planet Capital group, an impact-led, global venture capital firm built to invest in growth companies from the world’s top innovation ecosystems. We provide venture and growth funding to entrepreneurs and businesses profitably solving the world’s greatest challenges in Climate Change, Education, Health, Sustainable Growth & Security.

Our network and strategy provide unrivalled access to growth companies emerging from leading academic institutions and the centres of innovation that surround them.
We are looking for someone who has a passion for early-stage companies in a discipline or market which complements our existing team. Areas of particular interest include:
- AI and machine learning
- Digital Health
- Software engineering
