YearResultExplanatory Note
201115.252011 Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) invested $4.63 million and leveraged $70.59 million of third party investments. The target ratio for 2012 has not increased since the number of investments made by CIT during 2012 has increased substantially (from $500k in 2011 to $5.8 million in 2012); therefore, the ratio will be lower since it takes a while for the companies to obtain additional investments. 2008 was first full year of data capture for productivity measure
201212.24Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 leverage ratio is down because more funding was leveraged in FY2012 compared to FY2011. Funding in FY2011 was $500k compared to $6.8 million in FY2012. Since these investments are made in emergying technology companies, it takes years before they mature to the point that they can attract other funding. So while investments are up, the ratio of 3rd party investments are down due to the increased numerator in the equation.
