Mercia’s vision is to become a leading national player in the creation, funding, incubation and development of high-growth technology businesses with an emphasis in the Midlands and the North of the UK. Mercia brings together technology transfer, company formation and incubation, commercialisation and investment, to technology ventures.
The Directors believe that there is a significant opportunity in the Midlands and the North of the UK to develop leading technology businesses through the efficient and targeted provision of capital and support, creating substantial value for Shareholders.
Mercia is focused on creating and developing companies which combine technology and service provision, are rich in intellectual property, are scalable and require relatively modest capital infusion. Mercia focuses on some of the highest growth sectors in the UK, leveraging deep expertise across a number of arenas - including digital, electronics and hardware, advanced materials, engineering and specialised manufacturing and life sciences.
As sector specialists, our team members across the board, investment team and support functions have been directly involved in financing, building and managing companies. Our team works extensively with each portfolio company to build out and scale them to drive profitable exits and ultimately deliver shareholder returns. Our team's collective track record for excellence is testament to their quality, experience and expertise.
The Directors are responsible for the determination of the Company's investment policy and strategy and have overall responsibility for operations - including the review of investment activity. The Directors meet at least ten times per annum, and the Audit Committee meet at least four times per annum.
Mercia's model is to provide, where needed, early stage businesses with capital, infrastructure and management support to both ambitiously accelerate their development and enhance their value.
Mercia Technologies create capital growth for shareholders - by operating as a national player in the creation, funding, incubation and development of high-growth technology businesses.
Our partnership with some of the most forward-thinking academic establishments in the country offers an unrivalled pipeline of deal flow opportunities.
