Albany NanoTechs Kaloyeros Featured In Entrepreneur

By: by The Business Review



Alain Kaloyeros, who heads the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, is featured in Entrepreneur.

Under the headline "For this Nanotech Professor, Science Means Business," Kaloyeros tells how he was urged back in 1988 by a friend at IBM not to take the job at UAlbany. At the time, Entrepreneur writes, the school "didn't even have an engineering program."

Entrepreneur writes that for Kaloyeros, "building that nano-empire meant challenging business as usual and adding an entrepreneurial angle to academic culture."

The nanocollege, located on the Albany NanoTech campus, collaborates with research and development departments at 250 companies, according to the publication.
