Advancing Innovation

Vecotech was launched to exploit scientific discoveries to tackle some of the world’s biggest insect-related public health problems. We aim to transform promising research findings into novel technologies to monitor and control insect pests and protect people living in disease-endemic countries.

Driven by Excellence

Driven by Excellence

We are a spin-out from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (the School), a world-leading centre for scientific research and postgraduate education in public and global health, to address the gap between academic discoveries and getting those discoveries into practice.

We share the School’s mission to improve health and health equity in the UK and worldwide.

Innovation with Impact

Innovation with Impact

Our mission is to advance scientific discoveries to improve public health across the globe. We focus on developing products that not only address market needs but also have strong social impact.

By working closely with NGOs, local designers and manufacturers, we aim to produce the best products that align with different cultures across the globe. Our global access initiative will ensure that our products are made available to people from all corners of the world, protecting everyone safely from biting insects.

A share of our profit will be used to support causes that will transform people’s health and well-being for the better.

Pushing Boundaries

Pushing Boundaries

By pushing early-stage concepts through to commercialisation, Vecotech bridges the gap between world-leading expertise and the world’s need for effective tools against medically important insects.

We work with pioneering academic institutions and industry partners to identify new, promising technologies and provide the resources to develop its potential. If you have a novel idea or concept, we’d love to hear from you.
