Investment fund


Theodorus SA is an investment fund that was created by the ULB in 2006 to invest in university spin-offs:

  • valoriser la recherche universitaire menée à l'ULB;

  • finding practical applications for academic research carried out at ULB;

  • enabling young entrepreneurs to build their own high-growth potential company;

  • offering attractive returns on investment for ULB and other investors.

Theodorus holds €5.4 million capital, provided by both private and public shareholders. The fund may invest in up to 10% of a ULB spin-off's capital. The Theodorus team is also able to help compile a business plan, manage intellectual property, and assist in legal issues, etc.

Theodorus has progressively built a reputation as reliable among investors, and provides financial leverage to new businesses.
