Interest: This drama is going to be long and painful, and it’s only just beginning. There were a lot of firms that raised their last funds before the financial crisis of 2008, and after putting much of the cash to work in startups, they are finding it much harder to raise new funds today. While some of what’s happening may be a necessary culling of the weaker members of the VC herd, this trend is going to make it tougher than ever for some worthy entrepreneurs to raise cash for new companies to develop...

Interest: Start-up technology companies have some gripes about higher education. One is that universities routinely make it hard for the public to access basic data, like course catalogs and book prices at the campus bookstore. Another is that when trying to sell services to a college, like a Web service that allows faculty members and students to organize and share their research and online readings, companies can’t find the people who make the purchasing decisions.

Interest: The report, 'Academic Excellence: The Making of World-Class Research Universities' published earlier this month (6 October), examined the experience of 11 leading public and private research universities in nine countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. The top performers shared three key factors, it found. These were: high concentration of talented academics and students, abundant resources and strategic vision and leadership.

Interest: Next month, entrepreneurs from six Tampa Bay startup businesses churning through a 3-month business accelerator called Gazelle Lab will each make their 8-minute company pitch. The Nov. 17 venue is unusual: on stage at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. No Tony Awards are likely. But funding from a good-sized gathering of investors in the audience may be forthcoming.

Interest: The campus -- on Roosevelt Island -- would be organized around interdisciplinary hubs. "Connective media," "healthier life" and "built environment" are the three hubs at this time, but they are subject to change. These hubs are all applied science programs that would create ideas and products for those sectors in the city, Collins said.

Interest: The UGARF, in turn, uses the money to help fund new research. The revenue from Restasis will be difficult to replace. However, the University’s large and diverse patents will keep it’s licensing revenues well above their levels ten years ago. “We have no products that have generated revenue on the scale of Restasis, yet,” said Lee. “However, UGA has a very successful technology commercialization operation, in fact one of the best university-based programs in the country....
