    This article proposes an analytical framework regarding the geography of innovation by Dedicated Biotechnology Firms. The framework is based on the comparison of 61 French DBF?s and their 129 founders. Four distinct business models are drawn from the empirical material. Each corresponds to a peculiar combination of : (1) distinctive technological and managerial competencies, (2) the resources mobilised as to maintain the viability of their business projects, (3) the location of the actors (individuals, organisations) involved. Classification JEL : L2, O3, R3.
