Octopus Ventures report highlights untapped potential in UK universities

Octopus Ventures, part of Octopus Group and one of the largest VCs in Europe, has released a new in-depth study identifying the universities that are leading the way in creating and commercialising their academic research through spinout companies. 

Queen’s University Belfast came first in the rankings after it was found to be the most effective in terms of its production of spinout companies, and successful exits, relative to the total funding received. Through QUBIS, the commercialisation arm of Queen’s, the university has had a number of notable successes such as Kainos, Andor Technology, and Fusion Antibodies, all of which have been listed on the London Stock Exchange. The University of Cambridge and Cardiff University are placed second and third respectively.
