Abstract:Academic spin-offs are often not able to find the profitable market for their product and thereby fail to commercialize their technology and to achieve a status of self-sustainability. To overcome that problem those spin-offs sometimes make use of business incubator services to fill the gap of lacking resources and knowledge about the market. Three technology spin-offs from the University of Twente were studied based on the impact of business incubator services on their commercialization process and the degree of involvement of the business incubator they were consulting. The findings suggest that medium to high involvement of incubator services usually promise a higher chance of commercialization. Furthermore, some of the involved services can only be leveraged successfully when a sufficient amount of resources from the spin-off itself is dedicated to collaborate with services offered by the incubator.
