Abstract/Description

Entrepreneurship and innovation education has derived from
established university curriculum and the context is set of concepts and tools used
in the corporate world. The challenge of transforming a start-up company into a
business success needs different capabilities. It goes beyond the development of
an idea and writing-up a comprehensive business plan. This study analysed over
200 technology-driven companies which have been created under the formal
requirement of a business plan competition since 1996. The objective was
to identify drivers for innovation and success. From the results, an agenda of
entrepreneurial and innovation education was derived and is discussed.
