Abstract [en]

There is, from both a scientific and a practical point of view, an emerging interest in investigating the necessary conditions for creating new businesses. Perhaps one of the most important factors is the presence of an entrepreneurial university that both advances emerging areas of knowledge and puts this knowledge to use in developing the local region (Clark, 1998; Cooke, 2002). Therefore, has academic entrepreneurship been of high focus in spin-off creation both from the research (Lindholm, 1994; Feldman and Klofsten, 2000; Rickne, 2000) as well as from the practitioner viewpoint? Furthermore, to what extent has it resulted in the creation of various training programmes and incu- bators (Aaboen et al., 2008; Bergek and Norman, 2008)? A good practical example of the positive regional development effects of promoting entrepreneurship is the Entrepreneurship and New Business Development Programme (hereafter called the ENP) which is highlighted in this chapter. To understand the underlying structures and processes of entrepreneurial regional developments, this chapter addresses the use of academic entrepreneurship training, where coaching and mentoring are key tools to improve the quality and economic value of new spin-off firms.
