Small companies are in a vulnerable position where entrepreneurial ecosystems can contribute with expertise and important contacts.

“Entrepreneurial ecosystems” is the subject of CIRCLE member Janna Alvedalen’s dissertation which she recently defended at Innovation Technology – Design Sciences, LTH. In light of her research, Janna Alvedalen was interviewed by the “Entrepreneurship and Small Business Research Institute”.

– New innovative companies are expected to contribute to development and growth in different regions. But companies are fragile and have scarce resources. Only a small proportion of companies survive, and even fewer grow. Entrepreneurial ecosystems can therefore play an important role in supporting companies, says Janna Alvedalen in the interview.
