Frontier IP Group, a UK-based intellectual property management and consulting firm, has entered into a collaboration agreement with a University of Cambridge start-up to commercialize a technology related to chemical pesticides and fungicides.

Tarsis Technology has developed an innovation that delivers pesticides and fungicides in a more precise and controlled way. Under the agreement, Frontier will fund the technology’s development entirely, while receiving exclusive rights to Tarsis’ intellectual property for agrochemicals. Frontier will also provide Tarsis with royalties and milestone payments in return for equity options.

“We’re delighted a leading player in global agrochemicals is happy to demonstrate such a strong commitment to our novel technology,” says David Fairen-Jimenez, founder and director of Tarsis.

“We aim to bring industry and university spinouts together at a very early stage in the commercialization process. In that way, we ensure new technologies meet real world demands and needs,” says Frontier CEO Neil Crabb. “This agreement [with Tarsis] is yet another sign our approach is beginning to pay off.”
