Andrea Mica
Director, Oxford Technology

At Oxford Technology, Andrea has joint responsibility for making the investment decisions of the OTSEIS and EIS Funds and helps their brilliant start-up investee companies in whatever way he can, whether that is through business development, technology sourcing, fundraising, sharing best practice on practical matters, acting as a sounding board or simply standing back and cheering on the companies when everything is going as well as it possibly could.

Andrea Mica graduated from the Delft University of Technology with an MSc in Industrial Design Engineering, and went on for a further graduate study in Innovation and Creativity at the State University College of New York at Buffalo. He has a strong and varied background in technology prior to joining Oxford Technology – both promoting technologies for sale, and identifying new technologies to invest in. He also has an entrepreneurial streak – most recently he co-founded CleanSteel Ltd, a company that successfully developed a new technique for recycling waste products from the tyre industry, partnered with some of the industry giants and ultimately failed when the commodity prices went through the floor.  His first full time job was looking for ground based applications of space technologies as part of an European Space Agency backed consortium.
