Southampton has been placed in the top three universities worldwide for the quality of our spin out companies. An independent report by Library House drew favourable comparisons between the Universities of Southampton, Stanford in the United States and Cambridge.
Twelve successful companies have been spun out from Southampton since 2000, three of which have been floated on London’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM) with a combined market capitalisation value of £160 million. They are the oil exploration company Offshore Hydrocarbon Mapping (OHM), the asthma therapy development company, Synairgen, and the fibre laser manufacturer, SPI Lasers.
