Enhanced support package
The Founders Choice options become available when we jointly agree that a startup company is the best route for both commercial and societal impact for a given technology (or bundle of technologies).
Under the Enhanced Support package, founders of Imperial College London startup companies will follow the startup process as usual. They must:
- Disclose their invention to Imperial’s IPC team
- Work with Imperial’s IPC team to protect relevant intellectual property
- Come to a joint decision with Imperial’s IPC and Startup Teams about whether the technology is suitable as the basis of a new company
After these steps are completed, the founders will decide what level of support they require from Imperial.
