A new report has named the University of Manchester as the UK’s 6th most prolific university at producing spinouts over the last two decades, according to research into university spinout companies. Nearly one in every twenty of the UK’s spinouts were started at the university.

The IP experts at GovGrant have revealed the high achieving UK universities that have generated the most spinout companies in the last two decades, including spin-out company valuation, according to the University Spinout Report 2021.

The university is commended for generating some of the highest value spinout companies in the UK, with the most successful of the last 20 years being Microarray, currently valued at £114 million.

The University Spinout Report 2021 was produced by IP specialists and R&D tax credit experts GovGrant to celebrate the UK’s position as a global leader in innovation. It is based on analysis of just under 1,000 UK spinout companies, a sample that comprises £19.28 billion of capital invested, 4,489 deals and 1,907 investors.
