In this insightful book, Daniel Prokop sheds light on university entrepreneurial ecosystems and how they generate spin-out companies rooted in different spatial contexts. Paying particular attention to geography and network issues, Prokop conceptualises the varied performance of university entrepreneurial ecosystems by focusing on their actors, configurations and mechanisms.

Developing an evolving model of the university entrepreneurial ecosystem and spinout lifecycle, Prokop explores the hierarchical, nested and hybrid models of university entrepreneurial ecosystems, tracking how these relate to each other. Ultimately, the book argues that the geography and configuration of university entrepreneurial ecosystems offer asymmetric opportunities for entrepreneurial activity that result in divergent development paths for local and regional economies.

Of particular interest to students and scholars of entrepreneurship, organisational innovation, economic geography and regional economics, this innovative book will also appeal to policymakers and academic entrepreneurs seeking a greater understanding of university entrepreneurial ecosystems and spinouts.
Critical Acclaim
‘This book is a “must-read” for scholars and policymakers interested in developing effective university entrepreneurial ecosystems. Daniel Prokop significantly contributes to our understanding of how such ecosystems participate in the economic development of regions and how objective measures of ecosystems can be applied to evaluate their efficiency and performance. Bravo.’
