Five Benefits for Faculty who Partner with Businesses

Companies often have a problem that can be uniquely solved by a university partnership.  They will invest in external research to achieve an innovative solution for a new product or process that has great commercialization or market potential.  But why would an academic want to be involved with addressing current business challenges?
