We investigate the links between nanotechnology firms and distinguished academic institutions and individuals in various forms. We find that such links provide positive returns to the firm during the IPO process, with the general science base (number of patents) as well as the academia related science base (scientific articles a firm produces by collaborating with a top quality research university, associations with academically distinguished scientists, measured by the number of citations received from scientific articles) both having a positive effect on the firm's probability of having an IPO, as well as the IPO proceeds.A.l.
