Abstract

In the United States, the performance of Universities is also measured in the ability to churn out important businesses. In Italy the role of universities as the cradle of entrepreneurship has never been emphasized. In this article we discuss if the university is a marginal actor or if the society must change the perception towards it, from the cradle of scientific knowledge to an incubator of entrepreneurship. In particular, the article reflects on the impact of the University of Padua in the development of the local economy and in the development of business crea-tion processes by its graduates. In order to deepen the phenomenon, we intersected infor-mation related to graduates and to companies; in addition, between March and May 2017, we conducted a survey that involved 315 companies, created by UniPD graduates, selected through a stratified sampling by type of company and time of foundation.
