Climate For The New Economy

The experience of successful centers of enterprise creation like Silicon Valley has led many jurisdictions to create business incubators and development centers to try to duplicate that environment. However, the specific issues that arose in the virtual case studies did not lend themselves to remedy through incubators, and we hesitate to recommend such initiatives. More to the point appear to be cultural factors and the difficulty of securing resources, both material and human.
