The innovative and entrepreneurial university is artificially shaped based on the needs of economic and social development and the change of university development paradigm, and its formation needs the internal and external conditions. The external conditions mainly refer to the economic and technological paradigm of society, while the internal conditions mainly refer to the development paradigm of universities. For the establishment of innovative and entrepreneurial universities, external conditions play a decisive role, but this decisive role can only be realized based on the corresponding internal conditions. In this process, we should not only avoid bureaucratization of innovation and entrepreneurship and excessive utilitarianism, but also reasonably adjust the service boundary of universities and update the governance structure and organizational culture of universities.

Key words: post-industrial society, research first, innovation and entrepreneurship, utilitarianism, entrepreneurial culture
