Fleshing out UT's $50 million "venture fund"....

"He who is greedy for gain troubles his own house,
But he who hates bribes will live."
Proverbs 15:27

[Author's Note: We've had our issues with the UT open records process over the years, but in this case they responded within three business days with this very helpful list and we want to commend and thank them for doing so while avoiding the Attorney General process.]

Following our post last week about the UT "venture fund" we submitted several related open records requests to the system; they began to reply yesterday with this summary of the disbursements:

It will take us awhile to go through all the companies that received funds, but if readers want to help save time and by crowd-sourcing this project they are welcome to look into the entities listed in the "company" column and they can e-mail us anything they discover at
