Strategic real estate partners to the world’s largest university spin out venture capital fund
Oxford Sciences Innovation plc (OSI) & Portfolio Companies
500,000+ sq ft
Since formation in 2015, OSI has built a portfolio of over 100 companies, worth over $2bn, within the Oxford ecosystem. Our challenge is to keep ahead of demand through advising and delivering a pipeline of workspace for their rapidly expanding portfolio.
The University of Oxford produced more start-ups (worth >$1bn) than any other European university over the past decade, aiming to create 20 new companies per year going forward. OSI’s portfolio spans life sciences, deep tech, health tech and software and AI, tackling challenges like the diagnosis and treatment of devastating rare diseases, cancer, sustainability, nuclear fusion, quantum computing and cyber-security.
We have the privilege of supporting the growth of these companies at the cutting edge of science by building a strategic pipeline of real estate. Our role is to support in delivering a real estate strategy, acquire buildings, and fit out for laboratory, R&D, or technical use.
Provision of flexible laboratory space is key for OSI given the growth trajectory of their companies. This is a venture capitalist who pushes the boundaries - with their portfolio, with real estate, and with us. We like that. Together, we are creating award-winning workspaces that are cultivating science.
