Academic Entrepreneurship - Startsida

Academic Entrepreneurship Academic Entrepreneurship People with Academic degrees who found companies University spin-offs Phenomenon rare but survival of those that do start is high; (68%) Creating spin-offs is more profitable than Licensing to Established firms It all got started in the 1970s..about Silicon Valley and Route 128 West and East coast Stanford MIT Sloan Technology Meccas

Semiconductors, IT and Biotech Setback in the late 70s early 80s; Silicon Valley recovered, but MIT only lately Role-models to therest of the world Innovation Systems A genuine belief that it was indeed possible to engineer a deficiency in entrepreneurship A clear favoring of opportunistic entrepreneurship over necessity entrepreneurship. Necessity entrepreneurship does not really exist Political and Social Issue Social Entrepreneurship

Activities aim to diversify production structures, increase production and exports, and create a foundation for employment and societal wellbeing.

The Incubator Their story: nearly 150 startups 1989-2005 success rate 85-90 % nearly 800 new jobs at the moment about 30 ventures in the incubators My questions: 16 yrs 9 firms/yr

50 new jobs/yrs Only 0.5% want to start growth companies => minimum 200 firms to get 1 growth company Is this the economic engine? Assuming Innovation = Entrepreneurship Is it a recipe for opting out? Most entrepreneurs are replicators Innovative entrepreneurship (high expectation entrepreneurship; Autio, 2005) has a high 1.6% prevalence and a low 0.5% prevalence

What about the other 98.4% - 99.5%? This fraction stands for most new jobs created and economic wealth creation Technology entrepreneurship: Entrepreneruship = innovation (Schumpeter) National/Regional Innovation Systems (NIS/RIS) Policy makers attempts to increase Economic growth Entrepreneurship Employment, and Taxable income

Innovative firms a.k.a high technology companies Assumed to create high salary employment Modern version of smoke-stack industry Most firm start small and never grow; 3% manage to grow beyond 100 persons Large body of previous research - growing The ideal: Triple Helix Government Government

Indus-try University Univer-sity Indus-try b. A laissez-faire model a. An etatistic model University Government Industry c.Triple Helix The study

The aim: Seek a common understanding of what an innovation system is and what it should be Identify potential weaknesses Identify potential overlap between the organizations, and Identify what measures need to be taken in order to increase venture development and

emergence of growth companies 50 in-depth interviews; 1.5 hours; taped and transcribed Representatives of govt agencies (science park, regional development centres, area development centres, national technology agency Universities and polytechnic colleges

(researchers, rectors, deans, administrative support personnel) Entrepreneurs operating within the science park The study Survey among research and teaching personnel in three universities and one polytechnic college; response rate 23,5% N=326 Here we report on: 10

interviews from one out of the three universities researchers and administrative personnel 8 entrepreneurs Results What is an innovation system? Is there any other system than the US model; a capital and knowledge intensive environment that generates knowledge intensive growth

companies I dont know! What do you do if you have an idea? You go behind the corner and wait til it blows over, and then you back to research! We have tried to stay away as much as possible from their meetings and we want it to be that way Innovation system as seen by entrepreneurs and researchers Government

Entrepreneur Govern-ment Univer-sity Univer-sity a. An etatistic model ! The entrepreneur Industry b. A laissez-faire model ! Sources of Innovation Parallel universes: the entrepreneurs view The World

Government Univer-sity Entrepreneur Conclusions The researcher is passionate about research Involvement in entrepreneurship is time away from important research

Does not know who the relevant government bodies are Does not see itself as part of the science park The link (important) to business is through Industry collaboration; contract research; business innovation system Government: A real bureaucratic monster! The entrepreneur is part of an innovative business system not a government run national innovation system Does not think a science park

can provide any relevant support A hotel with broadband Needs university collaboration to perform basic research Problematic Different worlds Conclusions We are quite far from the ideal Triple Helix The entrepreneur is excluded The innovators is excluded A RIS or a NIS appears to assume that

ideas and potential entrepreneurs will line up if the system is in place! What do we know about university/ business collaboration Sometimes it leads to spun out business But; those conducting research in close proximity to business become better scientists and if they start businesses become more likley to succeed What do you know about the Bayh-Dole Act 1980? Made it significantly much easier to commercialize or license federally funded innovations
