Project Description/Abstract

Incubators have played an important role in nurturing innovation, entrepreneurship and new venture creation in the U. S. as well as in a number of other countries around the world. In recent years, many of the newly industrialized economies (NIE) of East Asia have embraced the model of the technology incubator, making it an integral part of their national innovation systems (NIS). The proposed project is an exploratory analysis of the high-tech incubation systems in China, Taiwan and the U.S., comparing the characteristics of each country’s approach to innovation as well as the role that ‘knowledge management’ plays in the incubation process. Data will be collected via document review, survey, site visits and interviews.
