Impact of a nations culture on high-tech innovation and entrepreneurship success

The aim of our activities are to address cultural aspects for high-tech entrepreneurship and high-tech innovation success.

We do this by providing education and information, organizing informational events, conducting (online) workshops and research work.

Some of the research questions we address are

  • What are cultural influencers for success in high-tech companies? (e.g. five key cultural dimensions)
  • How does culture interact with other innovation ecosystem dimensions (markets, context, institutions)?
  • What measures can be taken to overcome cultural influencers early in high-tech companies and increase their success rates? (e.g. how to create a balanced founder team)
  • Can the magnitude of success be influenced by these measures? (e.g. create more unicorns and more high-tech jobs)
  • Can the value of high-tech companies be increased? (e.g. enable exits in the hundreds of millions USD)

Excelling in technological entrepreneurship and high-tech innovations

In order for a nation to excel in technological entrepreneurship and high-tech innovations many aspects play a role. Our advisor – Prof. Shlomo Maital – who has 30 years experience in entrepreneurship education – talks in his book (Mapping National Innovation Ecoystems) about the four key dimensions of innovation that build a generic innovation ecosystem:

  • culture
  • markets
  • context (including infrastructure); and
  • institutions (including regulations).

While these four dimensions interact in complex ways, one of the most important ones and maybe the most critical for large success is culture.
