Kingston University has topped the tables for graduate start-ups for the fifth year running, according to data released by the Higher Education Statistics Agency.
The University's entrepreneurial expertise has seen off competition from 150 higher education institutions across the United Kingdom, after it helped its business-minded alumni get 270 companies off the ground in 2012/13 – up from 201 the previous year. The Higher Education Business and Community Interaction Survey 2012/13 also shows Kingston University has generated more start-up companies than all of the nine higher education institutions in Wales combined.
