Abstract

The process of technology commercialization from universities has changed dramatically in the last few years. Many universities are rallying to improve society by creating social impact and wealth in their regions through the commercialization of technology derived from the research enterprise. Academic entrepreneurship is becoming part of the strategic mission of many universities, and the breadth of stakeholders involved in the activity has expanded. The creation and maintenance of a transformational and progressive entrepreneurial ecosystem within the university environment is essential to foster, support, develop, and commercialize new technologies. We outline the issues related to this shift in university culture, and provide the results of our experiment in creating such an ecosystem across the University of Texas System academic campuses and health science centers.
