Interest: Yes — Theobald started 10 businesses over the span of 5 years. Each one a failed mess. But herein lies the beauty from ashes — he nailed it on his 11th try. Now ranked at #454 on Inc’s Top 500 Fastest Growing Companies in the U.S. for 2013, Theobald’s latest creation (with the help of co-founder Erik Hansen and a team of 23) is on target to reach $3 million in revenue this year.

The product, the Copenhagen Wheel, is a design from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology SENSEable City Laboratory.

Interest: Oregon State University recorded its best year ever in technology licensing - nearly triple what it earned just five years ago - during the last fiscal year, which ended June 30.
