Academic entrepreneurship has developed rapidly over recent years. Drawing on a research program over the past 15 years, this presentation assesses where we have got to with traditional approaches to academic entrepreneurship.
The presentation then considers the emerging strategies and support landscape in terms of the why, what, who and how of academic entrepreneurship. In particular, new initiatives in student entrepreneurship programs are moving rapidly beyond traditional classroom teaching to experiential learning.
The presentation develops a general framework to understand the ecosystem needed to provide coherent support for the new landscape of students actually starting ventures.
The elements of this ecosystem framework include university mechanisms to facilitate student entrepreneurship along a continuum of involvement from pre-accelerators through to accelerators; the involvement of a variety of entrepreneurs, support actors and investors; the particular nature of the university environment and the external context; and their evolution over time. The presentation includes examples of strategies and support.
