When academic spin-offs are compared with other research- and knowledge-intensive start-ups, it is apparent that spin-offs are significantly more research- and knowledge-oriented than other start-ups. This fact becomes evident in higher research intensity, higher inclination to patenting and more intensive contacts to science. Spin-offs fill a particularly research-intensive segment within the research- and knowledge-intensive sectors and establish a connection between science and market. In this paper, for Austria, it is investigated if the performance of spin-offs differs form that of other research- and knowledge-intensive start-ups. Econometric model calculations show that spin-offs are as for turnover and employment growth not more successful than other start-ups in the research- and knowledge-intensive sector.
