Illinois Universities Nearly Double Startups
from Crain's Chicago Business
Illinois universities are cranking out a lot more startups. There were 285 companies started last year by students, faculty or staff at Illinois schools last year, up from about 150 in each of the previous two years, according to a report by the Illinois Science & Technology Coalition. It's an eye-popping figure. And it's not clear how much the data reflect an explosion of startup output from universities and how much comes from better reporting.
