This article misses one huge asset for building an enterprise culture in the UK – our universities. In London, world leaders provide a hub for innovating and spinning-out business in everything from biotechnology to apps.
Last year, they supported 1,400 active spin-outs and startups in the capital alone. Despite these successes, London’s universities remain underutilised for economic benefit.
