UCLA startup companies are a source of job growth for the region, state and nation
from UCLA Newsroom
It seems nearly every level of government — from Congress to the nation's thousands of city councils — is touting small firms and budding entrepreneurs as the means to the kind of job growth that is needed to turn the economy around. In Southern California, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is leading the way with a record number of startup companies that are bringing fresh ideas to the market. During the 2009–10 academic year, which ended June 30, UCLA entered into 36 licensing agreements to commercialize novel technology; 26 were with small companies. This so-called "technology transfer" was triple that of 2007 and five times greater than a decade ago.
