Uniseed Overview

 

Why work with Uniseed?

Uniseed is Australia’s longest running venture fund, operating at the Universities of Melbourne, Queensland, Sydney & New South Wales, and the CSIRO, with investment capital provided by these research organisations.  These research organisations collectively spend $4 billion on research annually, making up over 40% of the total research spend in all research organisations in Australia.

In November 2015, Uniseed started its thrid and largest fund (Fund-3), with the five partners each committing $10 million over 10 years (total fund $50 million).  This followed three high profile exits in the preceding 14 months (Fibrotech sale to Shire; Spinifex sale to Novartis & Hatchtech sale to Dr Reddys Laboratories).

In March 2017, Uniseed announced the further commitment to a $20 million Follow-on Fund, and in 2018 a Co-Investment Fund was established with private capital providers through a relationship with Atlas Advisors Australia.
