Another hat tip, this time to Tech Futures, who highlighted the State Science & Technology Institute (SSTI), based less than 5 minutes away from me in Westerville, Ohio.  (And I never knew they were there!  Shame on me!)

Among this group’s many offerings is a PDF called “A Resource Guide for Technology-based Economic Development” – which was a project they did for the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration.  It outlines an approach based on three core principles:

  1. Positioning Universities as Drivers
  2. Fostering Entrepreneurship
  3. Increasing Access to Capital

For a small site, the SSTI offers a package that is remarkably robust with much information that is relevant to readers of this weblog.  Tech Futures also suggests signing up for SSTI’s free weekly digest.  I just did.
