Capital Rising -- How Capital Flows Are Changing Entrepreneurial Ecosystems

05.07.2010
Capital flows are changing the entrepreneurial ecosystems of countries and transforming industries, according to Capital Rising, a new book by Babson faculty Peter Cohan and U. Srinivasa Rangan. As flows change, companies are forced to rethink strategic choices regarding investments and how to manage mature businesses.

Cohan and Rangan extract best practices that will allow businesses to understand not only the impact of the global economy, but also give them the ability to capitalize on the rising wave of globalization.

Their video -- http://youtu.be/jCU6xYVWLJs -- shows how building healthy Entrepreneurial Ecosystems in countries around the world is the best hope for rejuvenating the global economy.

Their EE model enriches the business environment of a region by cultivating conditions that increase entrepreneurial activity to spur growth of products, services and jobs.

They outline 4 key factors necessary to maximize the use of capital to drive economic development and job creation:

-Financial Markets
-Corporate Governance
-Human Capital
-Intellectual Property.
Cohan is president of Peter S. Cohan & Associates, a management consulting and venture capital firm. He teaches business strategy to undergraduate and MBA students at Babson College and has also taught at Stanford, MIT, Columbia, and the University of Hong Kong. He is a columnist for AOL’s DailyFinance. The Achiever Newsletter ranked his eighth book, You Can't Order Change: Lessons from Jim McNerney's turnaround at Boeing, as the #1 business book of 2009. He has appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America," CNBC, CNN, Fox Business News and the Boston ABC and CBS affiliates.

U. Srinivasa Rangan is Associate Professor of Strategy and International Business at Babson College and holds the Kingsbury Term Chair. He is the co-author of Strategic Alliances: An Entrepreneurial Approach to Globalization.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
