    The Knowledge Spillover Theory of Entrepreneurship2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary theories of entrepreneurship generally focus on the recognition of opportunities and the decision to exploit them. While the prevailing view in the entrepreneurship literature is that opportunities are exogenous, the most prevalent theory of economic growth suggests that opportunities are endogenous. This paper bridges the gap between the entrepreneurship and economic growth literatures by developing a knowledge spillover theory of entrepreneurship. Knowledge created endogenously results in knowledge spillovers that give rise to opportunities to be identified and exploited by entrepreneurs.

    Creative Destruction and Productivity: Entrepreneurship by type, sector and sequence2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Schumpeter claimed the entrepreneur to be instrumental for creative destruction and industrial dynamics. Entrepreneurial entry serves to transform and revitalize industries, thereby enhancing their competiveness. This paper investigates if entry of new firms influences productivity amongst incumbent firms, and the extent to which altered productivity can be attributed sector and time specific effects. Implementing a unique dataset we estimate a firm-level production function in which the productivity of incumbent firms is modeled as a function of firm attributes and regional entrepreneurship activity. The analysis finds support for positive productivity effects of entrepreneurship on incumbent firms, albeit the effect varies over time, what we refer to as a delayed entry effect. An immediate negative influence on productivity is followed by a positive effect several years after the initial entry. Moreover, the productivity of incumbent firms in services sectors appears to be more responsive to regional entrepreneurship, as compared to the productivity of manufacturing firms.

    Spin-off: Individual, Firm, Industry and Regional Determinants2012Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The extent and importance of spin-offs for industrial dynamics have been analysed in a number of previous studies, yet knowledge is surprisingly scarce about the determinants that trigger such entrepreneurial ventures. In the current analysis we use unique and detailed Swedish data to comprehensively explore how individual, firm, regional, and industry variables influence spin-offs during 1999-2005. In addition to the expected general positive impact of regional size and entrepreneurial culture, we find specific features for knowledge intensive manufacturing and service production on the propensity of employees to spin off a new venture. Moreover, we use an entropy measure to disentangle unrelated and related variety, and find that the former has a significantly negative impact while the latter a significantly positive effect on the propensity of the individual to start a spin-off.

    WHY DO SOME MULTINATIONAL CORPORATIONS RELOCATE THEIR HEADQUARTERS OVERSEAS?2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the decision by a multinational corporation (MNC) to relocate itsbusiness unit and/or corporate HQ overseas. We argue that business unit HQs move overseasin response to changes in the internal configuration of their unit’s activities and the demandsof the product markets in which they operate, whereas corporate HQs move overseas isresponse to the demands of external stakeholders, in particular global financial markets andshareholders. Using data on 125 business unit HQs and 35 corporate HQs, we test and findsupport for these arguments. The research highlights important differences betweencorporate- and business-level strategy, and it suggests ways in which the theory of the MNCneeds to be reconsidered.

    Agglomeration, Diversity and Regional Growth: The effects of poly-industrial versus mono-industrial agglomerations2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this paper is to empirically examine the importance of the structure of agglomeration on productivity and growth. To accomplish this we will include the degree of co-agglomeration of similar industries as an explanatory variable in the empirical analysis, while simultaneously controlling for the degree of industry-specific agglomeration. To the best of our knowledge, the impact of co-agglomerated industries on productivity has not previously been investigated. The empirical analysis confirms a positive statistical relationship between interdependent and co-located industries on labour productivity.

    Entrepreneurship and Local Growth: A comparison of the U.S. and Sweden2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The U.S. is traditionally viewed as an economy driven by entrepreneurs, whereas the Swedish model is associated with high welfare ambitions and less focus on entrepreneurial activities. This paper seeks to empirically investigate whether the connection between entrepreneurship and growth at the regional level differs between the U.S. and Sweden. By regressing annual entrepreneurship on regional employment growth (and controlling for other conceivable variables impacting employment growth) entrepreneurship is shown to be positively and significantly associated with regional growth in both countries in the 1990s. Still, the result is more robust for the U.S. Other important variables for regional growth is business density and, in the case of the U.S., educational levels and internal scale economies.

    Geographical concentration, entrepreneurship and regional growth: Evidence from regional data in Sweden, 1975-992004In: Regional studies, ISSN 0034-3404, E-ISSN 1360-0591, Vol. 38, no 8, p. 929-947Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Geographical concentration, entrepreneurship and regional growth: evidence from regional data in Sweden, 1975-99, Regional Studies 38, 929-947. This paper implements Swedish data cross-tabulated on 143 industries (four-digit level) and 70 labour market regions for 1975-99 to examine empirically the degree of concentration in the production of goods and services, the relationship between concentration and regional growth, and the role of regional entrepreneurship. To our knowledge, these issues have not been analysed previously at this level of aggregation. Ellison-Glaeser indexes and Gini location quotients reveal a geographical concentration in Swedish industry that is stronger than in the USA. The econometric results imply a 2-6% higher growth in regionally concentrated industries. The effect is more pronounced for knowledge-intensive manufacturing, network industries and industries intensively using raw material. It is also found that regional entrepreneurship and regional absorption capacity are important explanations of regional growth, whereas the impact of the skill-level and economies of scale is more mixed.

    THE KNOWLEDGE FILTER, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, AND ECONOMIC GROWTH2007Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explores the relationship between knowledge creation, entrepreneurship, and economic growth in the United States over the last 150 years. According to the “new growth theory,” investments in knowledge and human capital generate economic growth via spillovers of knowledge. But the theory does not explain how or why spillovers occur, or why large investments in R&D do not always result in economic growth. What is missing is “the knowledge filter” - the distinction between general knowledge and economically useful knowledge. Also missing is a mechanism (such as entrepreneurship) converting economically relevant knowledge into economic activity. This paper shows that the unprecedented increase in R&D spending in the United States during and after World War II was converted into economic activity via incumbent firms in the early postwar period and increasingly via new ventures in the last few decades.

    Cluster Genesis: Technology-Based Industrial Development2007Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This book examines the origins and emergence of technology-based industrial clusters - regional concentrations of related firms and organizations - in order to understand the forces that promoted economic development. Many places attempt to emulate the world’s most famous industrial cluster Silicon Valley, with its rich institutional landscape of engaged and leveraged research universities, high-flying local venture capitalists, world class supporting business and legal consultants, and rich collaborative networks. While mature clusters may look similar, what really matters is the process by which clusters come into existence. But there is little understanding of such processes, and little guidance provided on the role of policies in promoting cluster emergence. The book attempts to bridge this gap in the literature by focusing on the early origins of high-technology cluster in Europe, the United States, and China, and the ensuing policy implications. The book is organized around three main themes: Creation Myths Revisited, Considering the Development Cluster Context, and Crafting Cluster and Economic Development Policy. The empirical analyses suggest that clusters that grow rapidly as compared to the less successful ones are distinguished by vigorous entrepreneurial activity and the active building of institutions aided by the forces of agglomeration economies.

    Large firm dynamics on the Nordic-Baltic scene: Implications for innovation and growth2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the role of the 30 largest firms in the respective Nordic country and in Estonia over the last decade and for some variables between 1975 to 2006. The analysis confirms that the largest firms play a critically important role for industrial dynamics in the Nordic countries. Statistics are presented with regard to e.g. ownership, the distribution of employment between home country and foreign units, internationalization, R&D, the share of overall employment and value-added, and the dynamics over time. Both firms in the manufacturing and the service sectors are included. Even though large firms differ in terms of size and industry distribution, they do still play a dominant in all Nordic countries, albeit somewhat diminished over the investigated time period. From a policy point of view it seems of vital concern for the Nordic countries to retain their increasingly foot-loose and globally oriented large firms.

    The Emergence of a European Biotechnology Cluster: The Case of Medicon Valley2007In: Cluster Genesis: Technology-Based Industrial Development, Oxford University Press , 2007Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter examines the forces that sparked the emergence of a leading European biotechnology cluster - Medicon Valley. This cluster displays one characteristic feature which separates it from most other biotechnology clusters: its geographical location stretches over two countries: parts of Sweden and Denmark. The emergence of the Medicon Valley biotechnology cluster seems to have followed a somewhat different path than the biotech clusters in the United States. Whereas entrepreneurs orchestrated the emergence of clusters in the United States, universities played a crucial role in the Medicon Valley case and entrepreneurs entered - and reinforced - the process in a later stage. The more dynamic and fast growing biotechnology sector in Denmark is argued to be partly policy driven, partly associated with cultural differences.

    Philanthropy as a source of innovationManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Philanthropic donations directed towards education and research have the potential to be growth enhancing by augmenting knowledge production in society. However, knowledge about the role of philanthropy is relatively limited. To fill this gap this paper first provides an overview of the extent and evolution of Swedish philanthropy and then examines the connection between philanthropic donations and knowledge output measured as patent application and scientific publications. We find that total funding for research and development and university research is a strong predictor for patent and publication output. However, funding composition is overall not significantly associated with knowledge or innovation outcomes.

    Abstract [en]

    This article describes the academic contributions of the 2010 recipient of the Global Award for Entrepreneurship Research, Professor Josh Lerner of the Harvard Business School. Lerner’s empirical research on the inter-relationship between venture capital, innovation and entrepreneurship has greatly extended and improved our understanding of one of the major drivers of growth in modern economies. The first part of this article explains Lerner’s contributions as regards the structure and organization of the venture capital industry. Later, his most important publications on entrepreneurship, innovation and intellectual property rights are surveyed. Several aspects of Lerner’s policy-oriented work are then outlined, before the article closes with a brief conclusion.

    The Inventor’s Role: Was Schumpeter Right?2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    According to Schumpeter, the creative process of economic development can be divided into three distinguishable stages of invention, innovation (commercialization) and imitation. We show why there is a rationale for the Schumpeterian entrepreneur to also include the inventor in the innovation process. In addition, we provide a framework where the theories of Knight’s risk defining entrepreneur and Schumpeter’s innovative entrepreneur can be bridged. Merging the two enhances the possibilities of successful commercialization since the inventor may further adapt the innovation to customer needs, transmit information and reduce uncertainty. This serves to expand the market opportunities for the entrepreneur. The empirical analysis is based on a survey covering Swedish patents granted to individuals and small firms, with a response rate of 80 %. The results show improved commercialization performance when the patent is licensed or sold to an entrepreneur, or if the inventor is employed in an entrepreneurial firm, as compared to commercialization in the inventor’s own firm. Another important result is that, irrespective of commercialization mode, an active involvement of the inventor is shown to have a positive impact on performance.

    Agglomeration, Relative Wage Costs and Foreign Direct Investment: Evidence from Swedish MNCs 1974-19982009In: Journal of Industry, Competition and Trade, ISSN 1566-1679, E-ISSN 1573-7012, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 197-217Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines the relationship between agglomeration economies and relative wage costs in influencing location of multinational corporations. An inflow of firms to certain regions and industries is likely to increase demand for labor. If mobility of labor is low increased costs can be expected to deter additional inflows of firms, albeit agglomeration economies may compensate for higher wages. Despite its important policy implications this relationship has to our knowledge not been exposed to empirical testing. The empirical analysis finds that foreign direct investment has become increasingly sensitive to differences in wage cost across industrialized countries, but also that agglomeration economies related to knowledge externalities positively influences higher costs. The relative strength of these two forces impacts the spatial distribution of production.

    Can Countries Create Comparative Advantages?: R&D expenditures, high-tech exports and country size in 19 OECD countries, 1981-19992008In: International economic journal, ISSN 1016-8737, E-ISSN 1743-517X, Vol. 22, no 1, p. 95-111Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyses how increased R&D expenditures and market size influence the distribution of comparative advantage. Previous studies report ambiguous results and also refer to periods when markets where much more segmented and production factors less mobile. The empirical analysis comprises 19 OECD-countries and spans the period 1981 to 1999. It is shown how an increase in R&D-expenditures by one percentage point implies a three-percentage point increase in high-technology exports, whereas market size fails to attain significance. In addition, institutional factors influence the dynamics of comparative advantage.

    The trade-off between agglomeration force: Evidence from firm-level location data 1974-19982005Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The theoretical prediction of a trade-off between production costs and agglomeration economiesadvanced in recent “new economic” geography models has – despite its important policyimplications – not been exposed to empirical testing. Based on a standard model where labormobility is assumed to differ between two regions - the “European Union” (EU) and the “world”- the empirical analysis shows that a ten percent increase in relative wages decreases entry byMNCs by approximately nine percent in EU, but only by three percent in the “world.” Or, putdifferently, a ten percent increase in relative wages in EU requires an increase by 26 percent inagglomeration to keep production levels unaltered. To our knowledge, this is the first attempt toempirically estimate this trade-off.

    The Relationship Between Domestic and Outward ForeignInvestment Revisited: The Impact of Industry-Specific Effects2005Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The ambiguity reported in previous research as regards the effect of foreign direct investment(FDI) on domestic investments is shown to be related to how industries are organized. Basedon a simple model including monitoring and trade costs, we argue that a complementaryrelationship should prevail in vertically integrated industries, whereas a substitutionaryrelationship can be expected in horizontally organized production. Applying iterative SURtechnique,the empirical analysis confirms a significant difference between the two categoriesof industries. To our knowledge, this is the first attempt to reconcile the inconclusivenessreported in previous empirical analyses.

    Firms' rationales for interaction with research universities and the principles for public co-funding2012In: Journal of Technology Transfer, ISSN 0892-9912, E-ISSN 1573-7047, Vol. 37, no 3, p. 313-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    R&D managers at 50 firms who have formal relations with two research universities in Stockholm are interviewed about their rationales for collaboration. Drawing on this material, a distinctive typology of rationales for establishing cooperative relations is presented. While the typology demonstrates a considerable breadth of interaction rationales, rationales related to innovation, in terms of invented or improved products or processes, are found to be the main drivers for interaction. Based on this framework, we analyse which rationales for interaction are consistent with public rationales for supporting university-industry relationships. Public co-funding that allow firms to influence (part of) the academic agenda is identified as a particularly interesting case that requires further theoretical attention.
