We aim to build on our proven track record in developing our quality research into commercial opportunities and our success in technology transfer through incorporation of spin-out companies.

Our enterprise creation activity includes our support of Watt Ventures and Converge Challenge, which was jointly won in 2016 by Heriot-Watt spin-out Microsense Technologies.

Our enterprise creation team aims to enhance and increase staff and student creation of new companies by:

  • delivering seminars to staff and students that explain how to successfully create new companies
  • encouraging staff and students to pursue enterprise initiatives and awards
  • providing support to new and existing spin out companies so they can grow and become sustainable by providing mentoring and helping them access personnel, funding and networks
