Entrepreneurship and the UK student
We’re better at it but we don’t do as much of it as the Americans. This is the conclusion of a report into universities and their ability to produce entrepreneurial-minded graduates.

“The fact that just 11 per cent of students in our survey are engaged in enterprise and entrepreneurship related activities suggests there are still significant challenges in embedding a sustainable enterprise and entrepreneurship culture across the university campus. This compares unfavourably to the US where a majority of students are engaged in such activities.”
But the good news, according to the council, is that more spin-outs are made for per pound invested than in the US.
