'Spinning Out Success' Octopus Ventures (Nov 2020)

'Spinning Out Success' is the second annual report from Octopus Ventures which ranks UK universities on 'entrepreneurial impact'. (following on from 2019's 'Research to Riches'. The goal of this report is to identify which institutions create "investor-ready" spinouts and share the reasons why Octopus believes such institutions are successful.  

For 2020's report, Octopus Ventures interviewed some of the institutions at the top of the ranking, all PraxisAuril members, to understand in more detail their approach to creating and helping spinouts at the earliest stages. This then generated a list of six recommendations that they believe lead to the creation of companies that can attract investment and become successful.  

The report can be downloaded from the Octopus Ventures website and is attached here.
