UK start-ups outstrip those on the Continent for jobs

Start-up businesses in the UK create more jobs than those in any other major European economy, according to new research. In 2012, more than half a million people were employed by 242,000 UK businesses launched that year, said business consultancy Rousseau Associates. This compares with 398,521 employees in start-ups in France and 346,556 in Germany. Rousseau said UK start-ups created 876 new jobs per 100,000, against 424 in Germany and 627 in France.
