How to approach science to market in underdeveloped countries?

Mostly underveloped countries have by tradition a scienfic academy that don't communicate with the market. Some scientists think that they would simply sell themselves to the market with this approach.

How to change this culture? Can it help the national economy by starting more innovative companies such startups? By the way, are startups and the spin-offs model a good choice for regional development?
