University of California Press

This chapter focuses on technological innovation and new venture development in Japan. It explains that the steep curve of the developmental trajectory in Japan raises important questions concerning how we understand the relationship between economic organization and technological change. The chapter argues that a significant competitive characteristic in the evolution of the Japanese economy has been the strategic forging of linkages among innovators, providers, or risk capital and users of new technologies.

Keywords:   technological innovation, new venture development, Japan, economic organization, Japanese economy, innovators, risk capital
