regional development
Regional development
  • Increasing interest in stimulating entrepreneurship – but – the focus and the language is still on SMEs!
  • Growing literature that recognises that unless we have the appropriate unit of analysis we cannot affect the outcomes for a more entrepreneurial society.
  • SMEs as inanimate, difficult to define, but easy to count and locate..
  • Entrepreneurs come in many forms are human subject to motivations, values, skills capital and so forth..
  • We should not confuse Rugby with cricket!
  • There has been a devastating flow of funds into cluster development – without a recognition that it is the people in a particular eco-system that cause clusters to happen – over time
slide12
Why?
  • Curious about the disconnection between policy and outcomes
  • Learn how and why these people did what they did
  • The teaching model at CfEL – from those with more experience to those with less – so what do they know and what should the next generation know?
  • Connect the novice with the experienced – build local social capital
slide13

Method

Segal Quince Wicksteed

(1985)’s a complex ``family tree'' of start-ups and spinouts

Rosa and Scott (1999) to determine the prevalence of multiple directorship

Explored the rate of multiple directorships as a proxy for multiple business ownership amongst the directors of small firms.

Showed how many firms could trace their origin back to Cambridge University.

  • Mapping of the start-ups/spin-outs where key individuals were involved.
  • Identification of key individuals who influence multiple companies.
  • Links of entrepreneurs with prior association.
  • Mapping the level of interconnectivity between companies in a cluster as a measure of its social infrastructure.

so what discussion
So what? - discussion
  • Drill into local landscape to really understand what is going on – study replicated to Lowestoft and Waveney…
    • 10 year view – Schools - Champions
  • Birth rate strategies for Regions – look at needs of individuals as sources of inspiration and excellence – as important as sectoral investment
  • Nurture pre-existing networks
  • Temporal effects of clusters, technopoles – needs to be recognised by policy makers
  • Multiple Directorships
    • Novice, Serial and Habitual
  • Multiple Roles
