Gender & University Spinouts in the UK

This latest report from Oxford Brookes gives a unique overview of the UK spinout landscape from a gender perspective. The focus is on geography, governance and growth to understand where in the UK women are represented in spinouts, the extent of their involvement in IP and the relationship between women founders and company growth. It seems that women only make up one in three entrepreneurs, are greatly underrepresented on patent applications (14%) and spinouts are overwhelmingly founded or co-founded by men. Addressing women’s underrepresentation is not only a matter of social justice, it could potentially boost the UK economy by £250 billion and could be a critical element of the UK’s Industrial Strategy, which aims to increase growth through research and innovation.
