Hira Batool, Saddam Hussain, Zille e Huma

Abstract


Academic entrepreneurship, as a practice and a field for
scholarly investigation, provides an opportunity to challenge
questions and rethink about the nature and scope of publication. This paper puts forward an aspect for the research universities of Pakistan that can result in new value generation and job creation. Academic entrepreneur is missing forms of entrepreneurship in the relatively higher priority given to promoting or capturing economic value. Current research aims to fill this gap by adapting the corporate entrepreneur as a construct for academic entrepreneurship and internal
environment as a motivational factor in order to propose a model for this study. Findings support that university reward system; support, leadership, and organization structure are the key indicator of academic entrepreneur within these research universities. Results provide evidence that academic entrepreneurship has a positive influence on research commercialization and technology transfer for these higher education institutes.
