In turn, a growing number of success stories about university-based ventures dot the headlines. But, despite the numerous examples of ventures that find traction in taking campus-born ideas and research to market, the overall failure rate of startups in the wider world still lingers around 90 percent, with research showing that 21 percent fail in the first year and 70 percent by year ten.
