The University of Utah has explored and expoited a number of successful strategies to commercialize its intellectual capital in recent years.

But now we're starting to hear about another seriously innovative and fast-moving "laboratory" for cultivating new Salt Lake businesses, and it's a fairly new entity from the U of U's David Eccles School of Business called The Foundry.
