Dear University of Southampton,

I am writing to you with the hope that you will be able to answer my following questions about Spin Out companies.

1) How many scientific or engineering based start up companies and spin out companies have been created from your University each year for the last 5 years?

2) Of these companies, how many of them received private investment of over £100,000 within 1 year of starting up?

3) What is the typical % share of equity the University has taken in Spin Out companies each year for the last 5 years? Is this negotiable?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Ashley Monroe

Support, University of Southampton
