Statistical population of the present study is consisted of academic experts and specialists in Science and Technology park of University of Tehran and Science and Technology Park of Tarbiat Modares University and data collection was continued until reaching a saturation point. For selecting sample volume, snow ball method was used and finally, the research model was developed based on the opinions of 27 experts. In the second stage, the presented research model was tested by using SPSS 20, Lisrel8.8 and smartPLS.03 and results indicated that the relationships and components of the proposed model are significant.
