Imperial College Enterprise Funds offer alumni and individual investors an opportunity to invest in companies based on the remarkable research undertaken at Imperial College London through an early-stage, tax-efficient vehicle. 

First launched in 2020, Imperial College Enterprise Funds are managed by Parkwalk Advisors 

ICEF makes seed investments in early-stage, high-growth, research-intensive businesses that have emerged from Imperial's enterprising ecosystem. These could be spinouts based directly on academic research or deep science businesses developed by students.

ICEF has invested in 10 companies to date through its first two funds.
