Abstract [en]

This paper explores activities that Science Parks undertake in order to attract entrepreneurial talent for their tenants. Despite the importance of accessing talent, there are very few studies focusing this research area. The data comes from seven cases studies on talent attraction activities run by three Swedish Science Parks. We show that the parks conduct many different activities in order to attract entrepreneurial talent, which includes headhunting of key personnel for start-ups; organising establishment platforms for foreign companies, as well as facilitating exchanges of knowledge and talent with Higher Education Institutions. Science Parks host firms with different sizes, ages, and business orientation and therefore, park managers should be sensible to respond to real needs of tenant firms when performing talent attraction activities.
