Abstract
One notable addition to the literature on endogenous regional development and the ‘‘new regionalism’’ is the concept of the entrepreneurial region. The idea of the entrepreneurial region emerged from the recognition that small and medium size firms (SMEs) are important contributors to the innovative capacity of regions, more likely to produce disruptive and path breaking innovation economies (Acs et al., 1994; Audretsch and Feldman, 2003). They also recognize, however, that this potential is rarely realized, even in situations where firms exist in clusters benefiting from agglomeration.
