Fuelling Innovation

[Re: London is now the UK’s uncontested entrepreneurial powerhouse, Monday, City AM]
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. It’s time for universities and businesses in London to recognise their strengths and work more closely together to fuel innovation and prosperity.
