We have recently made an investment in Silicon Microgravity for the Opportunities Fund and the University of Cambridge Enterprise Fund V.

Spun-out of the University of Cambridge Nanoscience Centre, Silicon Microgravity has raised $7 million from ourselves, BP Ventures, Cambridge Enterprise and IP Group plc.

The company’s breakthrough sensing technology combines the recording of gravity data at very high sensitivities and seismic data at low frequencies. SMG is focused on developing and applying it’s technology primarily to improve surveillance, appraisal and production of oil and gas with additional application to CO2 storage, water management, mining and defence.
