External publications The myth of ‘Silicon Valley’?

The Silicon Valley economic region is seen as a model. It attracts managers, political leaders and researchers who want to explore the Californian secret of success – and in the best-case scenario, implement it in their own country. But is Silicon Valley really so inspiring – or is it simply a myth? Prof. Dr Ted Baker (Newark/USA) and Prof. Dr Dr h.c. Friederike Welter (IfM Bonn/University of Siegen) explore this question in their article "Silicon Valley entrepreneurship – Revisiting a popular dream".

Their article has been published in the Journal of Business Venturing Insights (JBVI) and is open access.
