High Technology Entrepreneurship introduces and analyzes all the major aspects of high technology small firm formation and growth. Locational and functional aspects of the process, as well as how contexts for development may vary between developed and developing economies are also discussed. Other key topics are also discussed, including: How high technology firms originate in theory and practice Entrepreneurship theory Incubators, science parks and clustering Entrepreneurial strategy and finance Students taking Masters level courses in entrepreneurship, technology, innovation, academic enterprise and industrial development will find this an essential textbook for completing their studies.
