A goal of the Wellspring of Innovation is to demonstrate Stanford's far-reaching and positive influence in the community and the world.
Emphasis has been placed on the actual founders of the business entity, rather than the founders of the company's technology. For example, accounts of the development of Cisco Systems' first router indicate that it was a collaborative effort by many individuals on the Stanford campus -- some of whom go uncredited here.
Smaller consulting firms, law firms and non-profit groups may be under-represented here, largely because they are more difficult to research. Submissions are encouraged.
