UCLA’s portfolio includes more than 1,000 active U.S. patents, and the number continues to increase. Campus research is licensed by established companies and start-ups alike. “Sandboxes” and incubators encourage faculty, researchers and students to explore the commercial possibilities of their discoveries, and to learn from colleagues across campus.
A robust entrepreneurial ecosystem continues to grow and expand, providing tools and resources for students, faculty, and industry. No wonder the Milken Institute ranks UCLA number 1 in the U.S. for the number of startup companies launched based on campus research.
