eBook Description: Silicon Valley. Boston. Singapore. Ireland. Scandinavia. Munich. When it comes to promoting entrepreneurial culture, some places just seem to 'get it right': serving as powerful magnets for talent, money, and ideas, and as powerful incubators for tomorrow's best companies. This book draws on extensive new research to pinpoint the key reasons why some locations succeed in the quest to become a technology centre, while others fail. The authors answer crucial questions about the world's entrepreneurial hotspots: What makes these locations so special? Which local characteristics are inherent? Which can be fostered? What are the best ways to promote local entrepreneurship? And what can budding centres of entrepreneurship do in order to enter the game? Creating Regional Wealth in the Innovation Economy analyses the key factors for developing regional success and wealth in the Networked Ecomomy. It identifies the best practices that business and government leaders need to consider to develop their area into a powerhouse of the future.
