UF’s incubator honored again (again)
Congratulating David Day and his team at UF’s Office of Technology Licensing is becoming a habit: they’ve been ranked 4th nationally for the number of start-ups formed, and 11th for the number of licenses and options granted for university research. (In a yearly audit conducted by the Association of University Technology Managers.)
This represents the 3rd time in under six months we’ve had the pleasure to give David & team a shout-out. Last April they were named the 2013 Incubator of the Year by the National Business Incubation Association, besting much larger competition from all around the globe, and just this past July they were named World’s Best University Biotechnology Incubator by the Sweden-based research group UBI.
The university’s OTL, Innovation Hub and incubator are vital parts of the hodge-podge of scientists, institutions and funding that make up Florida’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, all of whose members share great regional pride in their accomplishments.
