Abstract [en]

This paper examines small innovative entrepreneurs by contrasting patenting firms against nonpatentingfirms. The empirical analysis is based on new and unique data on internal attributes,location and international trade characteristics for over 20 000 manufacturing firms in Swedenwith 1-25 employees. Our main findings are that firms’ access to financial means, humancapital and trade with R&D-intensive economies correlate highly significant with theirpropensity to be engaged in innovation activities, as evidenced by patent applications.Interestingly, when controlling for firm attributes we do not find any significant effect of thelocal milieu on innovativeness among micro and very small firms.
