This paper was broken in two:
- Measuring HGHT Entrepreneurship Ecosystems: This now contains the definitions, measures, and example. It is an informal, by-example theory paper.
- Determinants of Future Investment in U.S. Startup Cities: The empirical analysis of ESOs is now here!
Research Policy Special Issue
This paper is for a Special Issue of Research Policy, organized by/for the UMM grant cohort. The deadline for submission is Nov 30th, 2019. See: https://www.journals.elsevier.com/research-policy/call-for-papers/uncommon-methods-and-metrics
Examples of questions that papers could address are:
- What fundamental constructs or elements might constitute a theory or theoretical base for the geographically defined entrepreneurial ecosystem?
- What are general definitions of entrepreneurial ecosystems so that entrepreneurial ecosystems can be measured in a consistent way across all sectors?
- What key relationships need to be captured at the entrepreneurial ecosystem level?
- How should the impact of local entrepreneurial ecosystems on economic growth at the national level be measured?
- Whose performance (and what) should be measured? Should researchers look at a mix of short- and long-term measures?
- Do existing rankings for entrepreneurial ecosystems measure what they claim to measure?
- To what extent are entrepreneurial ecosystems and innovation related?
- What are the salient levels of analysis (e.g., cultural, institutional, spatial) to consider when analyzing entrepreneurial behavior?How do the characteristics of entrepreneurial ecosystems vary by country?
- By which mechanisms do entrepreneurial ecosystems get established, mature, decline, or get renewed?
- What are the trade-offs between attracting entrepreneurs to a city, and solving urban problems such as affordable housing?
- Under what circumstances could a university be considered an ecosystem, and how does this interact with entrepreneurial ecosystems?What are more finely grained evaluations of the effectiveness of policy instruments that capture connections and ties across entrepreneurial ecosystems?
- To what extent is government policy accelerating or inhibiting the progress of entrepreneurial ecosystems?
