Midwest is super-home to tech/science start-ups


UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS — Start-up companies, like the ones out of the UI, are shaking up the tech and science worlds, but they’re also making a big impact in the state.

A new report by the Illinois Science and Technology Coalition shows more than 600 start-up companies have come from the state’s universities.

Even if their investors are on the east or west coasts, more than half are staying put in Illinois. For UI Research Park, keeping companies in town is a key goal.
