Entrepreneurial society refers to places where knowledge-based entrepreneurship has emerged as a driving force for economic growth, employment creation and competitiveness in global markets. All spheres (public, private and academic) have formerly been operated interwoven with a spiral pattern of linkages emerging at various stages of the innovation and industrial policy-making processes, generating knowledge and technology transfer. Therefore, the entrepreneurial university plays an important role as a knowledge producer and disseminating organization. Entrepreneurial universities are involved in partnerships, networks and other relationships with public and private organizations that are an umbrella for the development and growth of the national innovation system. The main purpose of this research is to identify the best practices for knowledge and technology transfer implemented by Spanish entrepreneurial universities. To fulfill this objective, an institutional perspective is adopted and case study approach is used.
