The contributions to this study of the origins of centers of industrial and technological innovation (such as Silicon Valley) reveal that these concentrated "clusters" of entrepreneurial high tech firms are characterized by rapid economic growth. No other analysts have examined how such clusters start, although many earlier works have studied Silicon Valley. The study's contributors conclude that the key public and business policy elements of starting a cluster are common to many regions, countries, and time periods.

Review

Review of the hardback: 'By covering a wide range of cases around the world they can make meaningful comparisons and contrasts ... a collection of essays with a clear purpose and in a coherent manner ... is certainly a book worth reading and recommending.' Environment and Planning C: Government and Policy

Book Description

The contributors study how centers of industrial and technological innovation such as Silicon Valley get started. These "clusters" have many entrepreneurial high tech firms in a small area which give rise to rapid economic growth. No other analysts have studied systematically how such clusters start, though many earlier works have studied Silicon Valley in its mature phase. The contributors show that the key public and business policy elements of starting up a cluster are common across many regions, countries, and time periods.

5.0 out of 5 stars High-Tech clusters can work complementary rather than competitive? Aug. 25 2006
By Papageno - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Authors of this book argue the essential difference between "start up" and "established" high-tech clusters. Their view of the role of outside/top-down power vs. internal/grass-route activity for these different phases is especially helpful to the people who are involved in planning or start up of these clusters. Certainly in flattening world century, success of the cluster is highly depend on recognitions of the other clusters in terms of technology opportunities, educated labor, flow of entrepreneurial talent and so on (there is no magic recipe!). It's true challenge even of these entrepreneurs to harmonize their own clusters complementarily rather than simply competitive with others.
