Frontier IP builds value by working in partnership with universities, investors and industry to commercialise intellectual property

Chief executive’s statement

The business model is also proving its resilience. The progress of the past year has clearly been overshadowed by the events of the final quarter as a result of COVID-19 and the unprecedented steps taken to stop the spread of the virus. While I would not want to underplay the negative impact on some portfolio companies, I believe for the portfolio as a whole, there is much more potential on the upside.
