Abstract

This paper discusses, in a preliminary way, the new dialogues that successful knowledge-intensive communities have adopted in order to achieve global business growth. Using empirical data on innovation from cities in Canada and the United States; innovation governance models from small and medium sized countries including Scotland, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden; and using differences in technology sectors—particularly telecom and photonics—this paper will present some modest insights into the path dependencies of small firms, small nations and globally competitive innovations.
