The purpose of this award is to recognize that entrepreneurship and commercialization are critical activities for the University, as well as for the broader economy, and to identify those faculty that exhibit exemplary entrepreneurial achievement.

Two awards were created for exceptional faculty achievement in promoting and maximizing the commercial potential and human benefits of university intellectual property and/or research as well as business development activities that support the expansion of markets, delivery mechanisms, and revenue streams for existing or new academic programs. Professor Lee was awarded the Established Entrepreneurial Achievement Award for his achievements in commercializing the IMS Center's Watchdog Agent Toolbox for Prognostics and Health Management by co-founding (with former students and post-doctoral fellows) local predictive analytics software and services company Predictronics Corp. in 2013, and Cyberinsight, a predictive analytics company focusing on the China market.
