Open Innovation and Entrepreneurship
Despite the importance of the resource-based, knowledge-based, institutional networks and the complex theoretical approaches explored in the reference literature, much remains unknown regarding the role played by the dynamic competencies and behavioral profiles of entrepreneurial ventures with different spatial concentrations, financing sources, research and development intensities, sizes, and ages in determining both economic and open innovation performance. Another gap found in the literature concerns entrepreneurial and open innovative ecosystems. There has been an increase in the number of literature suggesting reasons behind the emergence of ecosystems and their performance metrics, but they fail to examine in detail the exact mechanisms behind it, namely, the role played by endogenous production factors (for example, human capital, social or relational capital, organizational capital, knowledge and technological progress), by making use of micro or macro data. This gap may be addressed by cross-fertilizing the classic approaches on clusters and industrial districts, with emergent approaches on strategic coopetition and sustainable business models. If spatial concentration fosters the matching between government, firms, higher education institutions, and citizens, then there is an increasing need to deepen the knowledge in relation to the effects of agglomeration on the cross-fertilization of distinct economic activity sectors, spurring productivity and sustainable competitive advantages of nations, regions, cities, and entrepreneurial units, following the paradigm of open innovation.
