Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Regional Development

Julian Roche, Corporate Finance Trainer/Consultant and UN Expert on Commodities UNCTAD Risk Management Division, Singapore

Jay Mitra, University of Essex, UK The first definitive text on entrepreneurship and innovation management, this book examines both large and small businesses, and other organizations concerned with the creation and development of new products, services and new management strategies. Its distinctiveness stems from its wide, inclusive focus, its use of international case studies and its ability to emphasize the symbiotic relationship between innovation, organizational learning, and entrepreneurship in different types of organizations. This book introduces and explains the value of entrepreneurship and innovation for business and regional economic development and firmly establishes the link between entrepreneurship, innovation and learning in business and economic regeneration, and the contributory factors for their success. In addition it supports postgraduate teaching and research thorough explanation and the provision of empirical evidence and practical examples, and introduces original ideas, empirical concepts and practical examples on the subject.

Asian venture capital, launched with so much fanfare in the 1990s, has profoundly lost its way: billions of dollars has been lost in a range of schemes, many supported by governments. A huge number of would-be entrepreneurs have been encouraged to apply for funds, new institutions have been created and serious attention has been given to the Asian market by US and European funds - and yet the number of successful VC firms remains low and MBOs virtually non-existent (except in Japan). Private equity was a transplant into Asia: but has the transplant taken and what is the prognosis for the patient? This revealing book is a comprehensive review of the motivation behind, the course of, and the successes and failures of private equity/venture capital in Asia. It evaluates investments by country and sector, examining the firms, the investments they have made, how they have performed, how they are viewed by government, what regulation is like and what the sector has contributed to the regional economy. A comparison with the USA and Europe as well as other developing economies puts Asian venture capital into a global perspective. The first volume to give a comprehensive overview of private equity in the region, Julian Roche’s book takes an evaluative approach to the sector’s successes and failures, and as such makes for a valuable resource for postgraduates and professionals in the areas of Asian business, venture capital and international business. Selected Contents: 1. The History and Evolution of Private Equity in Asia to Date 2. Venture Capital: The Information Search 3. The Structure of Asia Private Equity Investment 4. Legal Issues 5.

The Formation and Development of Small Business Issues and Evidence

Information Technology and Competitive Advantage in Small Firms

Peter Johnson, Durham University, UK

Brian Webb, Queen’s University Belfast, UK and Frank Schlemmer

Peter Johnson has put together a collection of his groundbreaking research. Now in one volume for the first time, it will be of great interest to those in every area of business and economics.

Series: Routledge Studies in Small Business Does IT matter? This book argues that even as IT hardware, software, data and associated processes are becoming more of a commodity, it has never been more important to manage IT as a strategic asset. However, managing IT as a strategic asset is notoriously difficult, as is studying the impact of IT on firm performance. This book sets out to identify, explain and critically evaluate current research in this area. Beginning with a thorough introduction to Schumpeterian economic theory the authors re-cast the pre-eminent theory in strategic management research (the Resource Based View) in the light of a Schumpeterian analysis and identify Dynamic Capabilities as an extension of, but also a radical departure from, RBV. The role of IT as an endogenous technology is discussed and it is argued that how we define IT determines not only how we study it but also how we use it and benefit from it.

Entrepreneurial Opportunity

Innovation and Entrepreneurial Networks in Europe

The Right Place at the Right Time Greg Clydesdale, Massey University, New Zealand Successfully starting a new business venture depends upon more than having a brilliant idea, getting funding, and getting the product or service to market. Entrepreneurs must also learn to read the market and understand the environments in which they must operate. Entrepreneurial Opportunity places the emphasis on reading and making the most of things that may be beyond the entrepreneur’s control, from defaulting contractors to the opening and closing of business niches. It also considers previously under-considered options, such as ’the political entrepreneur.’ This long over-due text provides a far more realistic view of entrepreneurial opportunity and the importance of the business environment. Yet despite its realist stance, the book is decidedly optimistic, showing readers how markets evolve over time and present opportunities through that evolution. As Clydesdale states, ’it’s not always fair out there,’ but this book captures the excitement of the market and its role in delivering opportunities. Drawing on a broad range of academic research, Entrepreneurial Opportunity is written in a manner that is accessible for students and practitioners, with examples and mini-cases from a variety of industries, including high technology, hospitality, and motion pictures.

Edited by Paloma Fernández Pérez, Universitat de Barcelona, Spain and Mary Rose, Lancaster University, UK Series: Routledge International Studies in Business History The entrepreneur is involved in the dance of two questions – what is needed and what is possible. The interplay of these two questions is an ongoing process and innovation varies internationally and regionally, depending on differing legal and policy systems, variations in the development of education and skill development, in social processes and in knowledge transfer. This book explores innovation and networks in entrepreneurship with an interdisciplinary approach, focusing on how old and new knowledge can be combined to produce radical innovation. These chapters combine themes of entrepreneurship, innovation and networks with a specifically European focus, highlighting the wide variations at the national, regional and business level. These variations suggest the need to break with traditional stereotypes about Southern and Northern Europe. The book takes a Schumpeterian perspective, emphasising the importance of looking at the history of entrepreneurship and innovation, paying particular attention to the neglected area of innovation in services within firms.

The Foundations of Female Entrepreneurship Enterprise, Home and Household in London, c. 1800-1870 Alison Kay, University of Lancaster, UK Series: Routledge International Studies in Business History Just as women in business have often been hidden by men, they have often also been hidden by the ‘home’ and the conceptualization of separate spheres of public and private agency. This book argues that active business did not exclude women, although careful representation was vital and this has obscured the similarities of their businesses with those of many male business proprietors.

University-Industry-Government Innovation in Action

A Triple Helix of university-industrygovernment interactions is the key to innovation in increasingly knowledge-based societies. As the creation, dissemination, and utilization of knowledge moves from the periphery to the center of industrial production and governance, the concept of innovation, in product and process, is itself being transformed. In its place is a new sense of ’innovation in innovation’ - the restructuring and enhancement of the organizational arrangements and incentives that foster innovation. This triple helix intersection of relatively independent institutional spheres generates hybrid organizations such as technology transfer offices in universities, firms, and government research labs and business and financial support institutions such as angel networks and venture capital for new technology-based firms that are increasingly developing around the world. The Triple Helix describes this new innovation model and assists students, researchers, and policymakers in addressing such questions as: How do we enhance the role of universities in regional economic and social development? How can governments, at all levels, encourage citizens to take an active role in promoting innovation in innovation and, conversely, how can citizens so encourage their governments? How can firms collaborate with each other and with universities and government to become more innovative? What are the key elements and challenges to reaching these goals? Selected Contents: 1. The Triple Helix 2. The Entrepreneurial University 3. The Innovation State 4. The Triple Helix Firm 5. Counter-Cyclical Venture Capital 6. The Regional Innovation Environment 7.

Up to 3 paperback titles are available for 60 days inspection for lecturers considering adopting the books. If you adopt a book and expect 12 or more students to buy a copy, you may keep the book free of charge if you complete and return a comments form.
