Through a comprehensive analysis of cognitive factors and eco-innovation attributes, this book provides an understanding into why and how renewable energy technologies are adopted in an emerging market. Drawing on theories such as theory of reasoned action and theory of planned behaviour, Eco-Innovations in Emerging Markets proposes an extended cognitive model to analyse consumer behaviour in this area. Through the use of advanced statistical techniques such as Partial Least Squares, the book presents empirical data and discusses the implications they pose for policy makers and corporate managers.

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.

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.
