Editorial Reviews

Review

"'This is really a must read compendium of research on academic entrepreneurship. It should be on the reading list for any course in the area and [it] also provides an interesting perspective [for] other researchers...' - Marie C. Thursby, Hal and John Smith Chair of Entrepreneurship, Georgia Institute of Technology, US 'Shane provides, with an insider's perspective, an accurate and comprehensive profile of university spinoffs - what they are, how and where they are likely to happen, and their true economic and social impact.' - Mark E. Coticchia, Vice President of Research, Case Western Reserve University, and co-founder of Lycos, Inc, US 'What is particularly admirable about the book is that it would equally appeal to scholars from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds researching the phenomenon as it would to technology transfer officers, to the inventors involved or thinking of becoming involved in university spinouts, to policymakers, to surrogate entrepreneurs and to investors.' - Sue Birley, Director of the Entrepreneurship Centre, Imperial College, UK 'This book will be read by university administrators and government economic planners worldwide, who are looking to transfer the technology arising from university research into their economies. Scott Shane's detailed analysis of how one university has done so, coupled with a broader study of the factors needed to create an entrepreneurial climate around university research, provides a roadmap for this process.' - Lita Nelsen, Director, Technology Licensing Office, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA"

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Maurizio Floris on September 10, 2005
Format: Paperback
That's what the book felt like to me. Shane pulls together the little solid research that exists, adds his own impressive research and drives out a highly useful, coherent framework for anyone dealing with academic entrepreneurship.

Shane shares what is known, what the limitations are, and what appears to be a reasonable conclusion. Lesser authors would either hide behind the lack of existing research (overly academic) and provide no useful framework or hide the weakness of the data (typical consultant who tries to "sell" the framework).

Also, Shane has a crisp writing style that will make this book hard to put down if you are interested in this topic.

If you want an overview that provides practical suggestions, get this book!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Brian Petula on July 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
Interesting read about what recent research on university sponsored spinoffs indicates. The book does a good job of synthesizing what one might find by sifting through academic papers and resources at The Kaufmann Foundation. I couldn't give the book 5 stars since it doesn't share what universities can do to promote academic entrepreneurship with any specificity. The discussion is heavily skewed toward MIT and leading research universities and barely mentions non-technology ventures spun out of smaller, liberal arts colleges.

During my tenure at Cornell University's Entrepreneur In Residence, I found Scott Shane's book to be a valuable resource full of data and insight.
