We're here to support entrepreneurs


The Isis Software Incubator (ISI) supports nascent software ventures in the development of products or services and assists them to trade without external investment.

The ISI has been supporting such ventures since late 2010 and launched an on-site incubation facility at Summertown, Oxford in mid 2011.

Incubator services

We offer a wide spectrum of support services including commercial mentoring, Intellectual Property advice, assistance in identifying potential customers, enquiry handling and advice on formation of a limited company.

We also provide our ventures with 24/7 access to a joint development space, and shared IT facilities.

Portfolio ventures

We currently have 35 ventures in various stages in the incubator, some joined us right at inception, and some a bit later down the line.

While they all share software as a theme, their application fields vary from energy usage analysis through text analytics to social media networks and data analysis.

Let's talk

The ISI is currently accepting applications from entrepreneurs interested in joining our programme.

If you’d like to apply, have any questions, or would like to get in touch for a different reason, don’t hesitate to contact us.
