In the knowledge-driven economy, wealth generation is dependent on the commercialization of research results. University start-ups initiate the innovations and carry them through the economy. Innovation cycles get shorter and new products and services  are offered by knowledge-based spin-offs. They characterize the process of "creative destruction".

Innovative business models, entrepreneurship governance and access to venture capital are determining factors for successful university start-ups.
