HBCU Money™ Business Book Feature – Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action


7108725

“A powerful and penetrating exploration of what separates great companies and great leaders from the rest.”
-Polly LaBarre, coauthor of Mavericks at Work

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty?

In studying the leaders who’ve had the greatest influence in the world, Simon Sinek discovered that they all think, act, and communicate in the exact same way-and it’s the complete opposite of what everyone else does. People like Martin Luther King Jr., Steve Jobs, and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why.

Drawing on a wide range of real-life stories, Sinek weaves together a clear vision of what it truly takes to lead and inspire.

HBCU Money™ Histronomics: The Bayh-Dole Act


Excerpt from The Great American University by Dr. Jonathan Cole explaining the impact of the Bayh-Dole Act on colleges and universities:

“The change in the law that this act engendered was simple but of profound significance: In the past, intellectual property rights resulting from federally sponsored research at universities had been assigned to the federal government; they would now be assigned to the universities themselves. The universities would be able to patent discoveries and license the patented material to businesses interested in developing marketable products. Universities could even sponsor start-up companies based on the intellectual property that they owned and hold an equity stake in them.”

The Bayh-Dole Act

It is the policy and objective of the Congress to use the patent system to promote the utilization of inventions arising from federally supported research or development; to encourage maximum participation of small business firms in federally supported research and development efforts; to promote collaboration between commercial concerns and nonprofit organizations, including universities; to ensure that inventions made by nonprofit organizations and small business firms are used in a manner to promote free competition and enterprise without unduly encumbering future research and discovery; to promote the commercialization and public availability of inventions made in the United States by United States industry and labor; to ensure that the Government obtains sufficient rights in federally supported inventions to meet the needs of the Government and protect the public against nonuse or unreasonable use of inventions; and to minimize the costs of administering policies in this area.
