Abstract: Zimbabwe is currently transforming from a Resource-Based Economy to a Knowledge-Based Economy. To achieve the goal of a middle-income economy through unlocking value from research inputs, the Government of Zimbabwe reached a milestone through launching the Intellectual Property rights policy three decades after gaining economic and political freedom. The thrust is to realise value from the funded researches through collaborations. Therefore, this policy created an enabling environment to promote the University, Government, and industry engagement. How can we help poor people earn more from their knowledge-rather than from their sweat and muscle alone? It has been a difficult question for most Zimbabweans. For any developing nation to prosper, there is a need to promote and protect indigenous knowledge. Zimbabwe has improved its educational curriculum for the past three decades. However, the education system has failed to provide graduates who could produce goods and services for a developing nation. The Government had made an effort is trying to solve the anomaly by introducing more than ten state-owned universities and licensing additional two private-owned universities. This effort did not result in the formulation of any new industry, and the new academic programs and degrees did not even improve the confidence of the industry captains on the contribution the universities can do on industrial growth.
