Description: What do Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems and Google have in common? They all began life as research projects by students at Stanford University.
From NYU and Columbia to MIT and the University of Michigan, schools all over the country are spawning startups. And venture capitalists, major corporations and city governments are increasingly involved in creating an infrastructure to foster entrepreneurs and nurture technology transfer.
