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: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...

Im Focus: Quantum-physical Model System

Computer-assisted methods aid Heidelberg physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms

Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...

Im Focus: Glacier bacteria’s contribution to carbon cycling

Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.

A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
