    • University Entrepreneurship The Blue Line Entrepreneur Center at Penn State
    • Historical Precedence and Need
      • Each of these well known and successful companies were founded by university entrepreneurs at Stanford (Cisco, Sun, Yahoo, Google), Harvard (Facebook, Microsoft) and Texas (Dell).
      • Weebly was founded by Penn State undergraduates who then moved to Silicon Valley during their senior year. I-Conserve’ s IP was sold to a Silicon Valley company.
    • Sand Hill Road
      • It is not a coincidence that the largest concentration of VC firms in the World are across the street from the Stanford campus.
    • Sand Hill Road vs. College Avenue SOURCES: *Sperling’s Best Places, **Simply Hired Penn State/State College compares favorably with Stanford/Palo Alto in every measure except risk capital sources 0 85 Venture Capital Firms 6949 5157 College of Engineering Enrollment $607 Million $694 Million University Research Expenditures 40%** 43%** Adults with Graduate Degrees 69%** 74%** Adults with College Degrees $7,303* $7,606* Spending per K-12 Student 45,638 57,809* Population State College Palo Alto 14.1 27.7 Average Commute (Minutes) $324,900* $1,415,100* Median Home Cost 99.08* 234.42* Cost of Living (U.S. Average=100)
    • Happy Valley twice as cheap as the Silicon Valley
    • Importance of University Entrepreneurs
      • 8% of all university startups go public, in comparison to a going public rate of 0.07% for other U.S. companies. A 114X difference!
      • Over 400 university startups have been created from nationally based on federally funded R&D .
      • University start-ups have twice the survival rate of other U.S. companies.

    • University-Entrepreneurs
      • UE’s have access to world class facilities and advice.
      • UE’s have low costs of living, healthcare and access to talent.
      • PSU UE’s have access to the Blue Line for free office space and equipment.
      • What they don’t have is access to capital and time .
    • Time in the BIGGEST Enemy for University Entrepreneurs
      • University-Entrepreneurs have a short time on campus with access to facilities and experts.
      • Upperclassmen will likely start ventures more often than underclassmen, cutting their opportunity to two years or less .
      • Seniors and recent graduates have the lure of being recruited for high paying corporate jobs.
      • Business Plans take an average of 400 hours (six months) to write.
      • Due Diligence from VC’s or Angels could take many months more.
      • Business Plan contests usually have only one winner and come around only once a year .
    • VC’s Only Swing for the Fences
      • VC’s do not like to invest less than $5 Million in a company.
      • $5 Million VC investment would require a $100 Million Exit to be deemed a home run.
      • Only 0.3% of companies achieve the $100 Million level in the United States.
      • VC’s have a regional bias, not wanting to travel further than one hour by plane or car.
      • Therefore, the odds of a $100M venture-funded start-up coming out of State College are 600,000 to 1 .
      SOURCE: U.S. Census Statistics on Business Size
    • 94% of Venture Capital Investments are in Just 12 Metro Areas SOURCE: PriceWaterhouse Coopers MoneyTree Report
    • Swing Only at Strikes
      • 90% of the companies in the U.S. have 20 or fewer employee companies (0.3% vs. 90%).
      • Focus on creating <20 employee companies.
      • Mitigate as much risk as possible.
      • Provide only the funding they need, only when they need it , to reach sustainability.
      • Provide access and resources for the few breakthrough companies.
      • Step One: Create the Blue Line
      SOURCE: U.S. Census Statistics on Business Size
    • Venture Capital IS NOT the Answer for Local Economic Development
      • The odds of a successful venture-funded company in State College are 1 in 600,000 !
      • Even if that should happen, Venture Capital firms and Angel Groups who operate like VC’s seek and return on their invested capital within 5 years.
      • Today exits occur largely from mergers and acquisitions, not IPO’s.
      • M&A usually result in the acquired company moving or being consolidated.

    • Economic Impact on Region
      • We incubate 200 companies in a 10 year period, reaching the U.S. averages in size (shown in the table at the left).
      • 87% of the incubated companies survive.
      • Total employment, including spin-off jobs, would exceed 4000 .
      • Total economic impact would be $1.4 Billion.
      • Tax revenue would total $160 Million .
