Interest: "Universities may be forgiven for thinking that EU rules on state aid do not apply to them," Ramsay said. "However given the increasing trend for the commercialisation of university research and the offering of goods or services on the market it is important to bear in mind the limitations imposed by the rules."

Interest: Many entrepreneurs wish for a financial shot in the arm early on when they work full-time, trying to build their business in their spare time. Business accelerator programmes can solve this problem and offer an opportunity to work in a community of like-minded entrepreneurs, as well as the time to focus on developing their product without worrying about bills. It's no wonder startups are queuing up to get in.

Interest: The goal is to take a more complete view of the university's assets and improve its business relationships, said Marc Sedam, the initiative's managing director. Licensing officials recently compared the university's technology strengths to the strengths of the state's business community and were surprised to find significant gaps, he said. For example, UNH has strong programs in space science and maritime studies, but there were few business relationships that took advantage of them, he said.

Interest: The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, by its very name, was designed to make it easier for entrepreneurs and small businesses to raise capital. But the changes that the act introduced also allow hedge funds and private-equity firms to cast a much broader net for investments, which has state regulators and even some in the financial industry concerned. "The lifting of the ban on general solicitation for private offerings will subject unsophisticated investors to all kind of risks they haven'

Interest: In a crowded hotel conference room in downtown Brooklyn, N.Y., in October, Jerry Engel told dozens of earnest young scientists and engineers to cut the “scientific crap” and instead identify would-be customers who might care about their products. Frank Rimalovski piled on, urging attendees presenting research that they wanted to turn into businesses — from bone grafts to facial-recognition software — “to focus on the problem, not the solution.”
