SERG Technologies - Our Story

SERG Technologies is an Imperial College deep tech spin-out company, based in London, England. It was incorporated in February 2019 with a mission to revolutionise the way humans interact with technology by re-inventing human to machine interface and develop anthropocentric solutions in the healthcare field that will improve the quality of life for millions of people.

The company’s shareholders are its Founders: Ravi Vaidyanathan, Samuel Wilson, Alex Lewis and Christos Kapatos, with the venture firm Imperial Innovations maintaining a stake on behalf of Imperial College, and Velocity-Partners VC being the lead-investor of the pre-seed round that was closed on December 2019. Two independent Business-Angels are also shareholders.

SERG is working closely with NHS hospitals and leading UK private clinics as well as with market-leading companies in the prosthetics and orthotics, medical and homecare fields, creating partnerships, raising awareness and promoting its technology.

Our technology was awarded both the “Most Promising Innovation in Robotics” award by the UK Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in 2016, as well as the “National Health Service (NHS) Innovation Challenge Award”. It has been featured for innovation by BBC and ITV, and the Team has been invited for presentation at 10 Downing Street.
