Show Summary Details

Preview

Only a certain kind of entrepreneurship, ‘high-potential entrepreneurship,’ really matters for society. The causes of such entrepreneurship have been explored in some depth but too often in a fragmented fashion. This chapter considers the relationship between R&D strategies at the firm level and their broader economic consequences. The analysis offers important insights for public policy-makers, implying these rates of high-potential entrepreneurship will tend to change slowly and that policy leverage is difficult to exert.

Keywords: high-potential entrepreneurship; R&D; policy leverage
