Economic Development Through Entrepreneurship by Scott Shane pdf free download. Entrepreneurship is often seen by policy makers as a key mechanism for enhancing economic development, particularly in regions where entrepreneurial activity was once vibrant and is now lagging. To policy makers, entrepreneurship is a good solution because it provides a relatively noncontroversial way to increase the proverbial pie, creating jobs and enhancing per capita income growth. Therefore government offi cials frequently search for mechanisms to enhance entrepreneurial activity in their regions, whether those mechanisms are tax policies, financing subsidies or other tools. Universities are also seen as valuable institutions for economic development.

Perhaps because the primary mission of universities is education, and education is viewed by virtually everyone as good, and perhaps because universities are among the most geographically stable entities in existence, rarely relocating to other locales, policy makers often look to ways to turn universities in their regions into engines of economic development. Mechanisms to enhance technology transfer from universities, to reduce brain drain out of a region, and policies to create linkages between universities and industry are among the many efforts chosen by policy makers to use universities to enhance regional economic development.

Recently anecdotal evidence has begun to emerge to suggest that these two economic development efforts are not independent. Policy makers are beginning to examine the role of universities as entities to enhance economic development in regions through their effect on entrepreneurial activity. Whether the anecdotes focus on the creation of university spin-off companies to exploit intellectual property created at universities to create jobs and enhance productivity in a region, or they focus on ways to use universities to attract and train women and minority entrepreneurs who otherwise would not settle in a region, the message is clear.

Policy makers are beginning to think about universities as facilitating economic development through entrepreneurship, and are searching for policy levers to enhance that activity. However, despite a wealth of efforts to examine both the role of entrepreneurs in economic development and the role of universities in economic development, no systematic effort has been made to examine the intersection of these two sets: the role of universities to enhance economic development through entrepreneurship.
