Financing Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Markets offers an original perspective on the links between macro data on innovation, data on micro-entrepreneurial processes and venture capital supply. The authors synthesize two disparate fields of research and thinking—innovation and entrepreneurship and economics—to illuminate how domestic companies compete and the business environment in which entrepreneurial firms operate. Its broad scope and firm linkages between processes at different levels leapfrogs research topics. For those investigating entrepreneurship and innovation in the early stages of economic development, this book demonstrates how micro and macro foundations of productivity, and hence economic growth and development, are inextricably intertwined. Combines macro and micro perspectives on innovation processes Reveals how economic growth and development are inextricably intertwined Uses case studies to portray the entrepreneurial firm and its role in accelerating the speed of innovation and dissemination of new technologies Identifies common flaws undermining public venture programs, including poor design, a lack of understanding for the entrepreneurial process and implementation problems

What does it take for a country to develop and build a truly innovative pharmaceutical sector, especially when it comes to emerging markets? Although there has been tremendous overall economic growth in recent decades, why is there yet no world-class innovation hub in these geographies? And how is it that some places in the world are able to foster innovation, while others fail in spite of strong efforts? Are there certain key elements that are critical? In Drugs, Politics, and Innovation, author Ajay Gautam presents a new paradigm for understanding the healthcare ecosystems in markets and in countries likely to emerge as future innovation leaders. Using case studies and the authors own experiences from various emerging markets such as China, India, Russia, Brazil, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Mexico, as well as Israel and the United States, it evaluates and contrasts the approaches key countries are taking, and it forecasts what the future may hold for such efforts with respect to the life sciences, biotech, and pharmaceutical industries. Using the VITAL modelbuilt on critical elements like venture capital and funding, research and design infrastructure, a talent pool, leading universities and academia, and government policies, incentives, and legislationcan help provide a framework for creating a sustainable, optimal, and productive innovation ecosystem.

Although emerging market economies consist of 50% of the global population, they are relatively unknown. Filling this knowledge gap, Emerging Markets: Performance, Analysis and Innovation compiles the latest research by noteworthy academics and money managers from around the world. With a focus on both traditional emerging markets and new areas, such as the Balkan, Middle East, and North African regions, it looks at how these markets can serve as drivers of portfolios and a significant force over the long term. This noteworthy collection sheds some light on what lies ahead for emerging markets with the most up-to-date research from academics and practitioners. It covers general issues in emerging markets and provides in-depth studies of regional markets experiencing transition, including the European Union, Latin America, and the Middle East. The book also explores Asian and Indian markets as well as financial instruments, such as bonds and funds, relative to these markets. It concludes with chapters on regulations, corporate governance, and corruption.

The gap between rich nations and emerging economies is closing. As a result, the global dynamics of innovation are changing. No longer will innovations traverse the globe in only one direction, from developed nations to developing ones. They will also flow in reverse. Authors Vijay Govindarajan and Chris Trimble of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth explain where, when, and why reverse innovation is on the rise, and why the implications are so profound—for nations, for companies, and for individuals. The authors focus in particular on a traditional pillar of rich-world economic vitality: successful and long-established multinational corporations. All are now seeking explosive growth in emerging economies, and all must learn new tricks in order to succeed. Reverse Innovation shows leaders and senior managers how to make innovation in emerging markets happen, and how such innovations can unlock opportunities throughout the world. The book highlights the tribulations and triumphs of some of the world’s leading companies (including GE, Deere & Company, P&G, and PepsiCo), illustrating exactly what works and what does not. The new reality is that the future lies far from home. Whether you are a CEO, financier, strategist, marketer, scientist, engineer, national policymaker, or even a student forming your career aspirations, reverse innovation is a phenomenon you need to understand. This book will help you do that.

The authors investigate the determinants of firm innovation in over 19,000 firms across 47 developing economies. They define the innovation process broadly, to include not only core innovation such as the introduction of new products and new technologies, but also other types of activities that promote knowledge transfers and adapt production processes. The authors find that more innovative firms are large exporting firms characterized by private ownership, highly educated managers with mid-level managerial experience, and access to external finance. In contrast, firms that do not innovate much are typically state-owned firms without foreign competitors. The identity of the controlling shareholder seems to be particularly important for core innovation, with those private firms whose controlling shareholder is a financial institution being the least innovative. While the use of external finance is associated with greater innovation by all private firms, it does not make state-owned firms more innovative. Financing from foreign banks is associated with higher levels of innovation compared with financing from domestic banks.
