Notes from the AUTM Asia Conference

Michael K. Young


Thank you to the 750+ participants attending my keynote address, Economic Impact of Universities and Research Institutes, at the Association of University Technology Managers – Asia conference in Taipei yesterday. It was an honor to be with you and among so many who share my enthusiasm for innovation.

The UW has been developing our own ecosystem for technology entrepreneurship over the past five years. As a result, we have doubled the number of start-ups we launch each year, and our 17 technology start-ups in FY13 rank us in the top five universities nationally.
