Abstract

Universities and society benefit from academic entrepreneurship. Unfortunately, policies and procedures often have the effect of discouraging entrepreneurship by academics. While the culture of entrepreneurship is changing in university leadership and among faculty and students there are many administration policies which hamper entrepreneurial engagement with society. This chapter examines how academic entrepreneurship can be better managed by universities.
