Interest: Companies all experience growing pains, but for startups much of the early pain has to do with finding funding. After you’ve maxed out your personal credit cards to kickstart your great idea, now what? There are sources for funding out there — you just have to know who to turn to next.

Interest: This situation is not hypothetical. Since January, four U.S. universities have agreed to host Intel Science and Technology Centers (ISTCs) that will be funded at the rate of $2.5 million a year for five years. ISTCs will conduct research in various areas related to cloud and embedded computing. Each ISTC is led by two principal investigators, one from Intel and one from the faculty of the host university. Each Center will host three Intel researchers who will act as technology scouts.

Interest: There are many reasons for this. But to a surprising degree, US universities today are falling short because of a transformation within the nation’s academic community itself. Today’s great universities were built by members of the faculty who - contrary to the myth of the impractical professor - often turned out to be excellent entrepreneurs and managers.

Interest: A venture capital firm won't all of a sudden "move here or just spring up," Gordon said. "The typical way it works is a venture capitalist or group of venture capitalists start with a very small fund, and they create a track record."

Interest: Innovation is what has created the bulk of American jobs today and it will most certainly be the force that creates the jobs of tomorrow. America is home to the world’s best jobs and most prosperous economy quite simply because we’ve invented and made the things that the world wants to buy. And then we’ve invented ways to make those things better, faster, and cheaper.

Interest: University officials generally supported the shift, but they also wanted to protect academic researchers from being left behind in the race to the patent office. They argued successfully for language that gives researchers a year after disclosing their discovery, say, in a publication, to file for a patent. Universities also retain the ability to file "provisional" patent applications that protect a discovery while officials decide whether it is worth the cost of pursuing a full-blown patent.

Interest: A day after President Obama laid out his plan to stimulate jobs, the director of the National Institutes of Health made the case that funding biomedical research reverberates beyond the laboratory -- stimulating innovation and also having a significant economic impact, with each dollar of an NIH grant providing more than two dollars of benefit to the economy.
