A spin-off (or spinoff) is a new organization or entity formed by a split from a larger one such as a new company formed from a university research group.

Spin-offs include a dissenting faction of a membership organization, a sect of a cult, a denomination of a church, a diversified branch of a large corporation, or a start-up company formed by members of a research group at a university. A spin-off of Wikipedia is called a fork.

The process of deriving new radio or television programs from existing ones is also referred to as spinning off; see: List of television spin-offs.

Civilian goods which are the result of military or governmental research are also known as spinoffs.
