This *Management of Organization Review *(*MOR* - impact factor 2.738)
special issue aims to explore the key features of the innovation and
entrepreneurship eco-system in India. There is recent evidence that
innovation and entrepreneurship dynamics in transforming economies differ
from like processes in advanced market economies in significant ways.
Therefore, applying the dominant theoretical lens developed to study
innovation and entrepreneurship in advanced market economies may be
inappropriate. For instance, the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM)
surveys clearly demonstrate the composition of total entrepreneurial
activity (TEA) for advanced and transforming economies is substantially
different, with a significantly higher level of ‘need-based’
entrepreneurship in the latter. Hence the typical advanced economy
transition from wage employment to may be reversed in transforming
economies. Transforming economies also witness a significant role of the
transnational diaspora in their entrepreneurial and innovation processes.
Further, at the level of corporate entrepreneurship, London and Hart (2004)
argue that results of studies of MNE subsidiary entrepreneurship undertaken
in advanced market economies may not generalize to transforming market
economies. In summary, a fundamental question is whether entrepreneurship
and innovation in transforming economies are diverging from the norms of
advanced economies as these countries get wealthier and develop entirely
new trajectories.
