Academic Entrepreneurship

We examine the entrepreneurial process and success by following researchers in Germany over a three year time horizon. We show that every third scientist develops a business idea. Inventors are more likely to think about commercial exploitation than scientists without an invention. However, this entrepreneurial potential is not fully exploited because only about one in six with a founding idea actually founds a company or goes into business about three years later.
