Powered by University of Cambridge, Cambridge Innovation Capital Plc (CIC), an investment platform focusing on investing in the sci-tech industry in the Cambridge ecosystem, has recently completed a new round of financing. Tus-S&T Service Group has become one of CIC’s new shareholders.



With University of Cambridge as its major shareholder, Cambridge Innovation Capital is the preferred partner for University of Cambridge’s investment in technological projects and enjoys priority access to the scientific and technological achievements of University of Cambridge. Cambridge Innovation Capital has successfully invested in a number of well-known hi-tech companies in Cambridge Region, including Bicycle Therapeutics, CMR Surgical and Jukedeck.


With more than 3,000 high-tech companies, Cambridge Region is one of the fastest growing economies in the UK and an important cluster-based research and innovation centre around the world, leading the way in terms of R&D and innovation capabilities in biopharmaceuticals, healthcare, computers & big data, artificial intelligence, energy and environment. The funds raised through this financing will be used to support Cambridge Innovation Capital’s investment in new opportunities emerging in the sci-tech ecosystem of Cambridge Region.



Cambridge Innovation Capital’s emphasis on clustering innovation and global innovation networks is the main reason for its cooperation with TusHoldings. As a leader in Cambridge’s cluster-based research and innovation, Cambridge Innovation Capital focuses on the transformation of scientific and technological achievements in the sci-tech industry, especially in the field of biomedicine, and is adept at effectively deploying innovative technologies, hi-tech personnel and experienced entrepreneurs for market-oriented operation.


Through this cooperation, TusHoldings’ extensive global innovation network will not only conduce to improving the company investment business of Cambridge Innovation Capital, but also help TusHoldings to go deep into Cambridge’s sci-tech innovation cluster, establish a network of leading-edge scientific and technological achievements in the UK, and effectively integrate such leading-edge technologies as biomedicine and artificial intelligence with the Chinese market.


After its investment in the establishment of TusPark Newcastle and TusPark Cambridge and in a number of technological projects, becoming a shareholder of the CIC investment platform also marks TusHolding’ steady and in-depth progress of its “park-industry-fund” triple helix model in the UK.
