I began researching the subject of campus entrepreneurship for two reasons; 1) entrepreneurs and their ideas (especially campus entrepreneurs) are fascinating and fun to learn about and 2) my belief (based on observed behavior of campus entrepreneurs) that the campus offers many assets and institutions that can be leveraged by entrepreneurs for advantage.
Some school leaders agree with my second reason and are starting to organize to assist campus entrepreneurs (see ASU for example). This blog was recently introduced to the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute and its Yale Startups website. From their mission:
While Yale has long been known for new company startups arising out of University research and faculty ideas, it has now increased its efforts to systematically encourage and promote the ideas of its student population, including events and programs that address best practices in the fundamentals of new venture formation.
Here is a list of some of their student ventures.
