This project aims to assess the degree of linkage between Proof of Concept Center (POCC) model for technical research universities with associated entrepreneurship ecosystem inputs in order to aid local, state and national policy-makers as they develop innovation strategy. This is done in three steps: 1) detailed case studies of successful POCCs based on data from unpublished resources and from expert interviews; 2) applying comparative analysis and functional business modeling techniques to identify the key structures, process and external inputs; & 3) by generating an investment decision analysis tool for use by funding agencies and university administrators as they consider adopting the POCC model at a particular University campus.
