Oxford Technology Management was founded by Lucius Cary, and since 1983 has specialised in making and managing investments in start-up and early stage technology-based businesses with high growth prospects.
The OTM investment team are all scientists or engineers by background, and understanding the technology is the starting point for any investment that we may make.
The Investment policy of Oxford Technology Management is to construct a portfolio of investments with the following characteristics:
- Unlisted, UK based, technology businesses
- Investments typically in the range of £100,000 - £2,000,000, although it can then invest similar amounts in subsequent rounds
- In most cases located within easy reach of Oxford to allow a more 'hands on' management strategy
It is expected that approximately half of the funds will be invested in early stage companies (those which have achieved some initial sales) and the balance in start-up companies which are at an earlier stage.
