Abstract: Many states, universities and the federal government have funded "commercialization centers" to spur small technology company formation, bring research to market, provide equipment access, and drive economic activity. These centers, however, have seldom resulted in significant and sustained industrial activity. The Richard Desich SMART Commercialization Center for Microsystems at Lorain County Community College (SMART) represents a new approach to such public/private partnerships and may prove to be a model for spurring technology growth in the United States.
