More Information
Focusing on academic entrepreneurship in the university context, the authors explore how researchers, teachers, students, academic managers and administrators make sense of entrepreneurship and of the paradoxes and contradictions involved. The book investigates how these diverse entrepreneurial actors and their stakeholders interpret and analyse entrepreneurial activities within the university ecosystem.

New Movements in Academic Entrepreneurship covers research commercialisation, academic start-up companies and entrepreneurship education, as well as university-society relationships more widely. With contributions from Europe, North America and Asia, this book helps to broaden our understanding of academic entrepreneurship using original theoretical insights and rich empirical data.

Essential reading for students and researchers of entrepreneurial universities and ecosystems, this book provides fresh theoretical frameworks and an inclusive understanding of academic entrepreneurship.
Critical Acclaim
‘Entrepreneurship has travelled in unexpected ways – it has expanded, multiplied and has now infiltrated the academic terrain, both for good and for bad. This book illuminates the routes it has taken, the encounters it has made, and asks us as academics to reconsider both how it has shaped us and the institution of knowledge. This laudable book seeks to move us as academics to take a sceptical approach to praise of academic entrepreneurship, but also to remain hopeful for our ability to nurture academia as a place for desire, joyfulness and curious experimentation that makes space for intellectual work.’
– Karin Berglund, Stockholm University, Sweden

‘This book expands the boundaries of the many different roles academics and academic institutions play in both furthering and hindering entrepreneurship (as construed in a variety of forms and methods) in a variety of contexts for a variety of individuals engaged in the practices of entrepreneurship. A major value of this book is that it challenges the academic ecosystem to consider a more expansive view of what entrepreneurship is, who is engaged in these different forms of entrepreneurship, and, to recognize that these varieties of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship already exist and can flourish, if we are willing to let go of our misguided preconceptions and misunderstandings.’
– William B. Gartner, Babson College, US
