Abstract: Research focused on university technology commercialization has almost universally praised the rise of the entrepreneurial university model and the benefits entrepreneurial activities have for participating stakeholders. In this study, we take a contrarian view arguing that the current structure and thinking on commercializing science does not adequately account for the true costs borne by participating stakeholders, as well as environmental and societal costs. We advance three alternative pathways that address the limitations of existing models, and thus move the field beyond the status quo, which we argue is not sustainable. These pathways provide a better way forward with more desirable outcomes for all different university types and their stakeholders. Specifically, each pathway considers the inputs, processes and outcomes of the proposed new entrepreneurial university models. Our research imparts important policy implications for institutions tasked with commercializing scientific discoveries and policy makers challenged with developing high growth, sustainable models.
