Women and Spinouts: An Overview to the Development Framework for Gender-Inclusive Academic Entrepreneurship

This competency-based Framework aims to support and encourage women researchers to become spinout founders. It is situated in an approach which recognises that many of the barriers researchers face on their route to academic entrepreneurship are structural. Similarly, this Framework also recognises that spinouts are typically founded by teams rather than individuals and so many of the resources encourage researchers to consider who else they bring in or lean on for support.
