Creator Fund raises $20m VC fund for frontier talent in UK universities

Creator Fund, the early-stage VC fund investing in deeptech emerging from universities, has raised $20 million for a new fund.

This bigger second fund will invest in the brightest scientific minds across the UK and help them scale businesses. Creator Fund backs PhD, academic and student talent building frontier technology startups in areas such as AI and life sciences to robotics and quantum computing.

Creator Fund also has closed a smaller European fund dedicated to angel investments in universities across Europe. Creator Fund was the first to pioneer in Europe the Silicon Valley-style model of investing in students, and it has now raised the biggest fund of its kind anywhere in the world. The ambition is to be the partner for any student founder from Stockholm to Zurich to Cambridge.
