The Geography of Academic Entrepreneurshipis a must-read for academics, researchers, doctoral students and policy-makers interested in the interdependencies between university spin-offs and the region.’ – Claire Leitch, Lancaster University, UK Building on a variety of contrasting perspectives, this book focuses on the connection between university spin-offs and regional economic development. It aptly captures the diverse range of concepts relating to the main participants in the process of university spinoffs, reflecting on their roles and how these may have changed. This fascinating book provides the reader with an in-depth exploration into the spin-off process, examining how it can begin and evolve over time and how it links to regional development. Chapters highlight pertinent methodological issues previous studies have faced, while putting forward intriguing critiques of the institutional environment. The lifespan and performance of these spin-offs is scrutinised, as well as their operation at different stages of development. Interdisciplinary perspectives are summarised in order to fully investigate the importance of university spin-offs to the economic development of regions. The Geography of Academic Entrepreneurshipwill be of keen interest to academics within the fields of economic geography and entrepreneurial business, and to those researching technology transfer processes in various national contexts. It will additionally be of great use to postgraduate students researching these processes, as well as policymakers seeking to ascertain how university spin-offs should be comprehended.
