A New Research on Academic Entrepreneurship
In this paper, we study the academic entrepreneurship that does not have enough resources and networks to the technology and market in new business creation. Recent years, academic entrepreneur research accumulates knowledge such as academic start-ups, entrepreneurship education at university, and difference of between entrepreneur and academic entrepreneur. But little is known about the academic entrepreneurs’ way of thinking and pattern of behavior in such situation. In order to shed light that, we conducted single case study.
Then, this paper shows the following two events. First, we propose a new comprehensive framework which helps to understand academic entrepreneurship. This framework consists of technology network, market network, entrepreneur team, mission, resource, and business theme. We also show relationships among these constituents. Second, we show progress of technology and market networking, then we consider similarity and dissimilarity between networking process and effectuation. Finally, we derive the theoretical implication for academic entrepreneurship and practical implication for entrepreneurship education at university.
