New Technology-Based Firms in the 1990s

Volume: 1

November 1994 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
New Technology-Based Firms in the 1990s: Volume One is a contemporary, international 'state of the art' view of research in these areas. It will be essential reading for those who have an interest in the innovation and growth problems of high-technology small firms in the mid-1990s. Both the conference from which this book emanates and this first volume of an annual series of books on the evolving theme of high-technology small firm research, are designed to publicize the high-quality work taking place in this academic area. A further intention is to put the development problems of high-technology small firms before an audience wider than the one that attended the original conference. Thus, this

book will not only be of interest to academics, but will also provide practical insights to high-technology small firms management, and to all those at local and national levels within developed economies concerned with the creation and development of high-technology small firms.
