We turn government-developed and crown-owned intellectual property into impactful products and solutions through commercialisation. We get the latest innovation and technology to market by negotiating license agreements and creating spin-outs.

We work with research and development teams within the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) including DSTL and AWE, as well as other government organisation including the Met Office and National Oceanography Centre to accelerate innovation across four portfolios – defence and security, digital science, health and wellbeing, and climate, environment and sustainability.

Our Three Pillar Strategy



We discover the best inventions. We work proactively with our clients to identify and evaluate the ideas that have the most commercial viability and will make the greatest impact.



We liberate with agility. We work with industry to find the most effective routes to market. We turn ideas into real-life products and solutions by sourcing investment and by investing into early-stage innovation ourselves via the Ploughshare Accelerator Fund.



We enable an ecosystem for successful innovation to scale. We engage with a variety organisations and stakeholders to ensure our technologies can go the distance. We collaborate with the innovation ecosystem to access to markets, leadership, talent, infrastructure, and capital.
