Chapter 5: Scientist entrepreneurship accross scientific fields

T. Taylor Aldridge, David Audretsch, Sameeksha Desai and Venkata Nadella

We shed light on this process by examining the role of scientist characteristics, access to resources and key university conditions in driving the likelihood of a scientist to start a company.
