A Study of Technology Transfer and the Academic Entrepreneur
This chapter considers academic entrepreneurship at Northeastern University. Based on an empirical analysis of the entrepreneurial outcomes associated with 400 invention disclosures, the authors find that faculty patenting productivity is positively related to certain entrepreneurial characteristics. The authors also find that an academic inventor's entrepreneurial experience and inclination towards commercialization have the strongest effect on their likelihood of forming a new venture. The results indicate the key determinants of successfully forming a university spin-out are the level of experience of the faculty member and participation in an industry sponsored research agreement.
