1 In March 2016, a 19-year veteran of Stanford’s Office of Technology Licensing characterized Stanford’s innovation ecosystem as, “organized chaos”.

2 In March 2016, a VP for Intel Labs commented, “my visit to MIT really confirmed your classification of them as a very decentralized UIE. They have separate entrepreneurial programs for each and every department of the engineering school; lots of accelerators, incubators and VCs.”

3 UC Berkeley’s tech transfer office (IPIRA) doesn’t have a group or even a staff person dedicated to venture catalyst activities, however it has staff (particularly the author of this paper) who integrate into their core responsibilities full-stack UIE development (which includes commercializing technology via mature corporations as well as via startups).
