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: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
