Abstract:This dissertation analyses the relationship between academic entrepreneurship and the funding of Dutch based University Spin-offs (USO’s) by utilizing a sample of 111 business proposals submitted to a Dutch governmental funding programme. By using the theoretical concepts of entrepreneurial orientation and human capital derived from the prior studies, I develop six hypotheses that relate entrepreneurial orientation and human capital to the likelihood of receiving funding. Binary logistic regressions indicate that USO’s with extensive dynamic capabilities and USO’s that define their project risks and uncertainties are more likely to receive funding. Contrary to my hypothesis the regression analysis also indicate that, USO’s that are non-internationalized and USO’s that show reactive market behaviour, are more likely to receive governmental funding.
