Kingston University, London is leading the way with its entrepreneurial expertise, producing the most graduate start-up companies than any higher education institution in the United Kingdom, for five years running. Kingston also holds the second highest spot in the United Kingdom for the total number of start-ups it has launched over the years, with the figure now sitting at over 600. Kingston is also rated second for graduate start-up turnover, with firms notching up a combined total of over £30 million.
NASE was born at Kingston University. Indeed, Kingston University were the main sponsors of the first ever Leap Conference, for which we are very grateful. It’s no wonder that our keynote speaker at this year’s Leap Conference is a Kingston Alumnus. Kingston’s involvement presents a great opportunity for Ugandan Universities and Students to exchange ideas and share best practices on how to raise the enterprise skills gap.
