Entrepreneurial activity is considered a driver of social and economic development throughout the world, as a consequence of the introduction of new ideas and the creation of employment opportunities it entails.
Particular attention should be paid to the creation of technology based businesses. These are companies that produce high value added goods and services with knowledge being their main source of competitive advantage.
These companies are committed to the design, development and production of new products and services, as well as innovative manufacturing processes through the systematic application of technical and scientific knowledge.
Universities and Technology Centres are continuous generators of this kind of initiatives. They are generally promoted by the structures of these institutions with the support of the public sector.
Universities regard entrepreneurship as a way to carry out their third mission: knowledge transfer, innovation and social commitment. The creation of companies from universities has been called “university spin-off”.
University spin-off companies are the ideal candidates to be technological partners of already established companies, since the growing costs of R+D projects, and the shorter time span of innovation cycles make technological cooperation a key issue in business strategy.
