In the book Startup Communities I spend some time talking about how universities can be powerful feeders into a startup community. A blog reader sent me a note pointing out the Florida Innovation Hub at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL as an example of what is going on in the community. They’ve got a nice glossy video describing the Florida Innovation Hub.
This is the first of 7 structures on a 20+ acre plot of land dedicated to entrepreneurship and commerce. It’s a great example of what a university can do to help a startup community.
