Universities are expanding their responsibilities beyond teaching and research to encourage more collaboration with other stakeholders (Abreu and Grinevich, 2013). This has led to more interest in technology start-ups and commercialisation. In addition, the global marketplace has meant more universities competing against each other for student income but also research interest. Therefore, universities classified as entrepreneurial go beyond generating and transferring knowledge to become ecosystems. These ecosystems refer to universities focusing more on ways to help create and grow businesses within the regional and international environment.
