Created in 2002, the Rainbow Seed Fund is backed by ten UK publicly-funded research organisations and the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). The Fund holds investments in some of the UK’s most innovative companies in areas as diverse as novel antibiotics, research into Alzheimer’s disease, “green” chemicals and airport security.
