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.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Julius Weinberg said he was delighted Kingston University had once again achieved pole position in the annual survey. ''Kingston University has long been a driving force in fostering innovation and has a strong track record in nurturing and supporting budding businesses and small and medium enterprises across the region,'' he said. ''We are committed to equipping our students and graduates with the knowledge and skills to create new businesses, new jobs and new wealth. This up-and-coming generation of entrepreneurs will be a pivotal part of Britain's economy as it moves forward.''
