Abstract

En este trabajo se analiza la situación económico-financiera de las spin-off universitarias españolas en 2012 y los factores que afectan a su cifra de negocios. De la información disponible sobre 346 empresas, se de¬duce que en su mayoría son pequeñas, de servicios y jóvenes. En general se muestran solventes, aunque deben mejorar sus resultados de explotación. Su cifra de negocios media ronda los 400 mil euros, siendo las spin-off que superan este importe las más veteranas, que han surgido en universidades que ceden espacios físicos para su ubicación y se encuentran en los primeros cuartiles del ranking investigador.
