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: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
