Book Description :

University Startups and Spin-Offs teaches university students, researchers, and educators the most effective strategies and tactics for launching their own startups from academic platforms with the backing of school programs, public grants, incubators, seed accelerators, and private partnerships in all parts of the world. Serial entrepreneur Manuel Stagars advises students, faculty, and researchers how to test their ideas for marketability, how to develop commercial products out of research projects, and how to engage companies and investors with attractive value propositions. The author has seventeen years of experience as startup entrepreneur, founder of seven companies in the United States, Europe, and Japan, consultant to universities on commercializing their research programs, angel investor, and startup mentor. Stagars’ advice is field-tested, battle-hardened, and supported with a wealth of instructive first-hand examples from his international experience. The author advises academic entrepreneurs to take matters into their own hands instead of relying on the initiative and support of universities and governments. He shows students and researchers how to fit lean startup methods to their existing university ecosystems, leveraging their strengths without getting bogged down in bureaucratic morass. Avoiding theory and jargon, the book focuses on real-world situations, practical steps, checklists, and case studies. University students and researchers will learn the skills they need to become startup entrepreneurs on an academic platform. The final part of University Startups and Spin-Offs addresses university administrators, educators, technology licensing officers, incubator managers, and government grant officers. It shows them with practical examples from the private and academic sectors how to integrate startups into the fabric of the university, develop a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem for students and researchers, leverage latent network effects, build bridges between scientific research and industries seeking innovative solutions, enhance the public image of the university, and motivate the university’s best and brightest to engage in startup enterprises that will deliver benefits to the university and the public as well as to themselves.

Book Description :

Philosophers, politicians, and scientists alike have long understood that knowledge and technological advancement play a significant, dynamic role in the wealth of nations. Subsequently, a thirst for innovation is at the forefront of many political, societal, and philosophical agendas. Academic research has been identified as a primary source of innovation1−6 and prodigious funding has supported this commonly held belief. One of the most direct methods for translating academic innovation into economic growth is by commercializing academic research.1−3 This process, known as technology transfer and commercialization, has gained traction over recent years by researchers, institutions, and entrepreneurs due to increased exposure of academic commercialization successes. One study found that over a ten year period, the number of annual executed licenses and number of startups launched has doubled.1 Despite this growth in research licenses and academic grounded startups, there are still two hurdles that inhibit many would-be scientist-entrepreneurs from making the jump from the lab bench to the board room: a lack of resources, and a lack of knowledge of the process to make the jump. Developing methodologies that support scientist entrepreneurs and demolishing the stigma of technology transfer that still inhabits some pockets of academia is critical for the efficient dissemination of knowledge from the laboratory to society. This paper contributes to existing literature on technology transfer by distilling pertinent information regarding the benefits of technology transfer and highlighting personal experiences to create a framework in which to approach technology commercialization. This framework, presented as roadmap to commercialization could be employed by academics as they embark on their own technology commercialization endeavor. Additionally, the framework could be useful for academic institutions interested in increasing their commercialization output by streamlining their technology commercialization process.

Book Description :

As state support and federal research funding dwindle, universities are increasingly viewing their intellectual property portfolios as lucrative sources of potential revenue. Nearly all research universities now have a technology transfer office to manage their intellectual property, but many are struggling to navigate this new world of university-industry partnerships. Given the substantial investment in academic research and millions of dollars potentially at stake, identifying best practices in university technology transfer and academic entrepreneurship is of paramount importance. The Chicago Handbook of University Technology Transfer and Academic Entrepreneurship is the first definitive source to synthesize state-of-the-art research in this arena. Edited by three of the foremost experts in the field, the handbook presents evidence from entrepreneurs, administrators, regulators, and professors in numerous disciplines. Together they address the key managerial and policy implications through chapters on how to sustain successful research ventures, ways to stimulate academic entrepreneurship, maintain effective open innovation strategies, and improve the performance of university technology transfer offices. A broad and ambitious work, the handbook offers comprehensive coverage for universities of all types, allowing them to confidently handle technology commercialization and further cultivate innovation.

Book Description :

In our knowledge-based society academic spin- offs are an important form of technology transfer. However, most related entrepreneurial efforts fail. When looking at determining factors, researchers have to be regarded as members of a complex social network consisting not only of academic peers but also of participants from industry, policy, and supporting institutions, and friends and family members. This network is the academic entrepreneur's general framework of operation characterised by resource and communication flows of differing nature. The book tries to answer the question under what conditions spin-offs from academia emerge with special emphasis on the entrepreneurs' social capital expressed in terms of their social networks. To this end a detailed analysis of the characteristics of the social network academic entrepreneurs operate in at the different stages of the spin-off process was executed. The results are intended to increase academic entrepreneurs' awareness on how to optimally using their social networks when setting up a new business, and to support political decision-makers in fostering respective entrepreneurial dynamics.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1,0, University of Wurzburg (Betriebswirtschaft), course: Academic Entrepreneurship, language: English, abstract: There has been a conspicuous increase in patenting and licensing, which is an indicator for an aggrandisement of academic entrepreneurship at American research universities since the 1970s. The number of patents which can be issued to universities and colleges increased by more than 100 percent between 1979 and 1984, as well as between 1984 and 1989. It almost doubled once more during the 1990s. In 1980 only about 20 research universities had technology licensing and transfer offices. 10 years later that number was 200, and in 2000 just about every major research university had founded its own (Colyvas et al., 2002, P. 1). University license revenues have increased from $220 million to $698 million from 1991 to 1997 (Association of University Technology Managers, 1998). Private sector activity is always associated with the risk of failure because of the responsibility which is connected with it. This leads us to the discussion why academics should escape from a "safe world" of their publicly financed institution to either become entrepreneurs or to work in private companies. What are the major reasons for the risk of entrepreneurial and private sector activity? The following paper tries to find an answer on this question by blending theoretical backgrounds and empirical elements. The second chapter serves as an introduction to the subject where the issue of the paper is narrowed further down and the key questions of it are defined. The main characteristics and concepts will also be distinguished in the second chapter, as much as it will be presented which aspects are not discussed in the paper. The third chapter of this paper concentrates on how internal and external factors influence the decision of scientists to show entrepreneurial behaviour."

Book Description :

This book analyses the importance of the entrepreneurial university, specifically in relation to the creation of entrepreneurial ideas and attitudes in students and entrepreneurial initiatives in academic institutions. The aim of the editors and contributing authors is to provide the reader with a set of experiences illustrating the advantages of communicating and encouraging entrepreneurship among students, thereby highlighting the “third mission” of the university: the need to adopt entrepreneurial strategy without disrupting the quality of teaching and research. Featuring initiatives from institutions around the world, the authors argue that the increasing importance of knowledge in the technical and social dimensions of today’s world provides greater relevance to the entrepreneurial university. In this context, universities transcend their traditional focus on teaching and basic research to carry out technology transfers, marketing ideas, and patent registrations, and incorporate spin-off companies that contribute to industrial innovations, economic growth, and job creation. In the teaching dimension, the entrepreneurial university represents a focus on programs which train students in the applications and most advanced practices in knowledge-driven fields. The book addresses such questions as: Can marketing ideas deteriorate the quality of research in the long term? What importance does the cultural framework have for an entrepreneurial education? What circumstances and programs facilitate spin-offs in universities What are the key features of entrepreneurial universities? In reference to entrepreneurship education in its broadest sense, then, it corresponds to the framework of ideas and general features on which entrepreneurship is founded: in-depth knowledge of the projects or ventures which they wish to carry out, capacity to perceive the relevant characteristics of the environment, and the leadership and goal setting skills to achieve success.

Book Description :

Decision-making, incentives, environmental frameworks and support mechanism are often subject to entrepreneurship research striving to explain how and why academics engage in entrepreneurial activities. The focus is most often on the academics' rather linear individual transformation from an idea owner to a new business entrepreneur. This paper proposes an alternative network based view of academic entrepreneurship drawing concepts from interdisciplinary theories. Entrepreneurship is described as: (1) integrated in formal and informal networks; (2) hindered or eased by these linkages; and (3) shaped by the opportunities (idea recognition, experience, finance etc.) within these networks. The academia produces new knowledge that through entrepreneurial activities transform into innovations in the market place. Academic entrepreneurship therefore naturally combines the perspectives of entrepreneurship and innovation. However, despite many common touching grounds these strands of research are rarely conceptually intertwined. Research on the role of the academia within the innovation process of knowledge-based economies highlight the meaning of inter-institutional links and give reason to assume that closer links between industry and the academia would benefit commercialization. However, little is known about the structure, strength and nature of these links. This paper has two purposes. 1) To examine the structure, strength and significance of networking to entrepreneurship with a deepened focus on opportunity recognition (commercial value) and exploitation in the perspective of academic entrepreneurship. 2) To develop a working hypothesis to be empirically tested with the aim to contribute towards theory building for these unanswered questions, for which it does not exist a cohesive normative, predictive, or explanatory theory. Method - Using an interdisciplinary theoretical framework a sample of academic entrepreneurs in the region of Fujian province in China is analyzed through data based on interviews. Paper contribution - This framing has potential for practical relevance and academic inquiry. It forces acknowledgement of the close connection between social and economic conditions for academic entrepreneurship and the role of networks for academic entrepreneurship. It also untangles a web of formal support systems and informal entrepreneurial networks. Conclusion - The process of the idea commercialized on the market may not be seen as a linear process, in which the academic owns the idea (identification of the commercial viable science) and becomes the entrepreneur by starting a company but rather as a dynamic process in which the origin of the idea may come from outside, indentified by members within the network of the academic and the appreciation of its commercial value, and the necessary resources (finance, entrepreneurial experience, re-innovation processes etc.) is added by yet others within the network. The presented concept describes academic entrepreneurial actions as non-isolated, non-deterministic, and dynamic co-creating through networks.

And, what is the impact of entrepreneurship in education? Through extensive research and case studies from some of the leading entrepreneurial thinkers around the world, Alain Fayolle and Dana Redford answer these questions and raise further issues for debate. Particular focus is given to developing university strategy, public policy and start-up support as a means to foster graduate entrepreneurship. Each contribution explores different perspectives related to the entrepreneurial university concept and its role in stimulating economic growth through cooperative relationships with business and government. As a comprehensive study of the entrepreneurial university, this Handbook will prove invaluable to business and entrepreneurship students and academics, as well as university administrators, researchers and others interested in the evolution of the university.
