This letter from academia reviews the academic literature and provides an overview of the trends in spin-outs from universities in the UK. We argue that it is important to develop a more comprehensive ecosystem for academic entrepreneurship that includes a wider range of actors and mechanisms. We
outline a framework of such an ecosystem and accompanying research agenda.
