Academic Entrepreneurship for Medical and Health Scientists Book Review:

The recent momentum and urgency around translating science and technology into health innovation is inspiring. It is transforming academia, too, as the rapidly-evolving world of health innovation has given rise to a new breed of academic - the academic entrepreneur - who works to move ideas from initial research to practical implementation. The work of these individuals is crucial to realizing the potential of investments in better care, and yet there existed no central repository for information and wisdom relevant to their mission; no place to house and explore the evolving knowledge base around translating evidence into impact.We aim to build one. In the spirit of collaboration, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute collaborated with the University of Pennsylvania's (Penn) Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (ITMAT) to seed fund a grassroots effort of editors, subject matter experts, and translational research students to create a free open education resource stored on ScholarlyCommons (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA).Academic Entrepreneurship seeks to build a diverse community of empowered professionals who know how to bridge the worlds of academic research and commercialization to turn ideas and discoveries into innovations that provide value to patients, providers, and healthcare systems, thereby realizing full market potential and societal impact. This book is a repository of tools, advice, and best practices that establishes a foundation for academic researchers and innovators wherever they may reside.Recognizing that academic entrepreneurs are busy and bright, and have limited time to learn entrepreneurship, the chapters in this book were designed as an efficient and state-of-the-art source of guidance. With carefully curated content as a strong foundation, the reader will have quick introductions to key topics in academic entrepreneurship and innovations with a list of resources for those who wish to go further.This book was created as a limited print run of the first edition of the living content stored in the University of Pennsylvania's open access repository, ScholarlyCommons, as of 1/1/2020. As a living e-textbook, the content of Academic Entrepreneurship for Medical and Health Scientists is continuously enhanced and revised.

University Startups and Spin Offs Book Review:

University Startups and Spin-Offs teaches university students, researchers, and educators the most effective strategies and tactics for launching their own startups from academic platforms with the backing of school programs, public grants, incubators, seed accelerators, and private partnerships in all parts of the world. Serial entrepreneur Manuel Stagars advises students, faculty, and researchers how to test their ideas for marketability, how to develop commercial products out of research projects, and how to engage companies and investors with attractive value propositions. The author has seventeen years of experience as startup entrepreneur, founder of seven companies in the United States, Europe, and Japan, consultant to universities on commercializing their research programs, angel investor, and startup mentor. Stagars’ advice is field-tested, battle-hardened, and supported with a wealth of instructive first-hand examples from his international experience. The author advises academic entrepreneurs to take matters into their own hands instead of relying on the initiative and support of universities and governments. He shows students and researchers how to fit lean startup methods to their existing university ecosystems, leveraging their strengths without getting bogged down in bureaucratic morass. Avoiding theory and jargon, the book focuses on real-world situations, practical steps, checklists, and case studies. University students and researchers will learn the skills they need to become startup entrepreneurs on an academic platform. The final part of University Startups and Spin-Offs addresses university administrators, educators, technology licensing officers, incubator managers, and government grant officers. It shows them with practical examples from the private and academic sectors how to integrate startups into the fabric of the university, develop a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem for students and researchers, leverage latent network effects, build bridges between scientific research and industries seeking innovative solutions, enhance the public image of the university, and motivate the university’s best and brightest to engage in startup enterprises that will deliver benefits to the university and the public as well as to themselves.

Educating Entrepreneurs Book Review:

As entrepreneurship programs proliferate—from classes in higher education to incubators, accelerators, open innovation platforms, and innovation factories—our understanding of the advantages and challenges of different modes of learning becomes increasingly obscured. In Educating Entrepreneurs, Kariv provides an impressively broad and thorough overview of the field of entrepreneurship education, along with practical tools for students to be able to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the different options that exist, as well as for these programs’ developers and managing teams to be able to plan and manage such processes. Examining these programs, which are found both within and outside of academia, along with insights into their challenges and opportunities, should help students grasp the entrepreneurship education field, its goals, target audience, and ecosystem involvement. Kariv supplements this comprehensive evaluation with case studies and examples that tie the theory to practical applications. Students can read about contemporary ventures, such as Y Combinators, Techstars, and SOSA, giving them concrete examples to relate to. Interviews with program stakeholders around the world complete the view, with an exploration of the cultural and country-based dynamics related to programs developed in specific countries. Being both thorough and informative, this book will serve students and faculty of entrepreneurship courses, as well as practitioners looking to understand their entrepreneurship education options.

Entrepreneurial Opportunity Recognition and Exploitation in the Academia Book Review:

Decision-making, incentives, environmental frameworks and support mechanism are often subject to entrepreneurship research striving to explain how and why academics engage in entrepreneurial activities. The focus is most often on the academics' rather linear individual transformation from an idea owner to a new business entrepreneur. This paper proposes an alternative network based view of academic entrepreneurship drawing concepts from interdisciplinary theories. Entrepreneurship is described as: (1) integrated in formal and informal networks; (2) hindered or eased by these linkages; and (3) shaped by the opportunities (idea recognition, experience, finance etc.) within these networks. The academia produces new knowledge that through entrepreneurial activities transform into innovations in the market place. Academic entrepreneurship therefore naturally combines the perspectives of entrepreneurship and innovation. However, despite many common touching grounds these strands of research are rarely conceptually intertwined. Research on the role of the academia within the innovation process of knowledge-based economies highlight the meaning of inter-institutional links and give reason to assume that closer links between industry and the academia would benefit commercialization. However, little is known about the structure, strength and nature of these links. This paper has two purposes. 1) To examine the structure, strength and significance of networking to entrepreneurship with a deepened focus on opportunity recognition (commercial value) and exploitation in the perspective of academic entrepreneurship. 2) To develop a working hypothesis to be empirically tested with the aim to contribute towards theory building for these unanswered questions, for which it does not exist a cohesive normative, predictive, or explanatory theory. Method - Using an interdisciplinary theoretical framework a sample of academic entrepreneurs in the region of Fujian province in China is analyzed through data based on interviews. Paper contribution - This framing has potential for practical relevance and academic inquiry. It forces acknowledgement of the close connection between social and economic conditions for academic entrepreneurship and the role of networks for academic entrepreneurship. It also untangles a web of formal support systems and informal entrepreneurial networks. Conclusion - The process of the idea commercialized on the market may not be seen as a linear process, in which the academic owns the idea (identification of the commercial viable science) and becomes the entrepreneur by starting a company but rather as a dynamic process in which the origin of the idea may come from outside, indentified by members within the network of the academic and the appreciation of its commercial value, and the necessary resources (finance, entrepreneurial experience, re-innovation processes etc.) is added by yet others within the network. The presented concept describes academic entrepreneurial actions as non-isolated, non-deterministic, and dynamic co-creating through networks.

Entrepreneurship Book Review:

Entrepreneurship has a tremendous impact on the economic development of a country, so much that entrepreneurship is seen as a solution for the fast changing economic demands worldwide and has been recognized as a path to sustainable economic development. Despite recognition of entrepreneurship on the road to global economic development, a large body of research on the elements of entrepreneurship education remains unresolved. Are these behaviors inherent to human beings, their genetic code, their psychological traits, or can students, young children, and even adults, be taught how to become an entrepreneur? This book presents several chapters following different approaches to answer these questions. Researchers explore education programs in different countries, they show experiences in entrepreneurship education, explain how to teach entrepreneurial skills, cultural issues, and propose some orientations and reflections on entrepreneurship education.

The Entrepreneurial Scholar Book Review:

What does it mean to be an entrepreneurial scholar? Dimo Dimov draws on an eclectic range of philosophical ideas to investigate the study of entrepreneurs and makes the case for entrepreneurial scholarship to become more holistic, dynamic, and future oriented. This thought-provoking book argues that entrepreneurs seek to put knowledge in the service of the future, whereas scholars seek to put the future in the service of knowledge. Engaging with this tension, Dimov explores the relationship between the study of entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurs who are studied. Creating a framework for entrepreneurial scholarship, this concise book highlights four distinct styles and approaches to the field: theoretical, integrative, craft, and clinical. He invites reflection on the role and place of entrepreneurs in modern society, and puts the case that the entrepreneurial scholar should embrace inter-disciplinarity as a way of engaging with entrepreneurship as a holistic experience, and draw on design science as a way of improving the art and skills of entrepreneurship. This innovative book will be a stimulating read for academics and students of entrepreneurship, and its accessible format will also appeal to reflective practitioners.

The Myth of the Idea and the Upsidedown Startup Book Review:

Based on decades of global insights into the life of successful and unsuccessful entrepreneurs, Professor Campos deconstructs the myth that successful startups are built upon great ideas, once and for all proving the vast majority of aspiring entrepreneurs are positioned to explore their potential before having a specific idea in mind for a new venture.In a friendly yet defiant and inverted manner, the book starts with the traditional end - by drawing a supported conclusion about modern entrepreneurial endeavors. Professor Campos then succinctly navigates through real cases and recent powerful concepts such as Design Thinking, Effectuation and Lean Startup, in an audacious quest to explain why execution emerged as the main source of entrepreneurial achievement around the world.The Upsidedown approach is presented in a conversational tone, allowing readers to discover an entrepreneurial process based on their ability to explore existing resources and social connections, thus debunking the myth that the idea is the crucial first step.

Academic Entrepreneurship in Europe Book Review:

The structure of the book and the organisation of material within chapters are well thought out with the authors skilfully weaving empirical material from diverse sources into an easily readable holistic account of the university spin-off phenomenon. . . Many of the lessons learned and conclusions drawn from this work are applicable to academic entrepreneurs in whichever faculty or subject area they work. David Woollard, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research This timely book fills a gap in the knowledge market. . . The authors should be applauded for taking the time to write and share their knowledge with us. This book will be welcomed by practising researchers. . . It will also be welcomed by busy lecturers, policymakers, students and chief executive officers. Robert Smith, Entrepreneurship and Innovation This book advances our understanding of university spin-off creation and development in environments outside the high-tech clusters of the US. While there has been substantial university spin-off activity internationally in recent years, a number of major aspects are little understood. The authors argue that the nature of universities is changing as reduced public funding reflects a public debate on their role in society. An important aspect of this international phenomenon is an increased emphasis on the commercialization of university research and on academic entrepreneurship. These new ventures therefore involve the spinning-off of technology and knowledge generated by universities. The authors adopt a multi-level approach in their examination of university spin-offs. European case studies are specifically selected to reflect the diversity of the institutional environment. In particular, units of analysis involving universities, technology transfer offices, spin-off firms, finance providers and individual entrepreneurs and teams are extensively analysed in quantitative and qualitative studies. To conclude, policy implications for the future successful development of spin-offs are identified. This fascinating book will appeal to a wide-ranging audience including academics, policy makers, researchers and practitioners with an interest in academic entrepreneurship and university spin-offs, and, more generally, in business and management and entrepreneurship.
