Entrepreneurs, Startups, and Innovation at the University of California

The University of California system plays an important and growing role in California’s economy, by producing cutting edge technology and know-how through its research programs, but also by enabling and supporting the formation of new companies by faculty and students.

Startups are important because in the vast majority of cases they locate in California, usually close to the founding faculty member’s campus or to the campus from which the founding entrepreneur/CEO graduated. They also tend to grow in the communities where they are founded, magnifying the importance of UC’s campuses to long-term job and business growth in the regions where they are located.
