What is OX1?

OX1 is an incubator program for student-founded startups at the University of Oxford. We take in Oxford students and guide them to spot problems, develop ideas, and build a formidable team.

  • Earthwise (OX1 2021/22, prev. Climaview), that helps sustainability businesses increase their revenue,  raised a pre-seed round and is launching a pilot with a major UK bank within a year of launch

  • Caviar (OX1 2021/22, prev. Danu), an NFT AMM startup has raised a VC-backed pre-seed round and strategic angel round within a year of launch
