About the Presentation
Entrepreneurship has emerged as a key strategy for regions, cities and provinces to attain a strong and sustained performance. In particular, entrepreneurship provides the conduit for the spillover of knowledge created in one organizational context but commercialized through innovative activity in other organizations. However, there are compelling reasons why the efficacy of entrepreneurship may be influenced on the local context.
