Spatial evolution of knowledge-intensive ICT services in Sweden: On the role of mobile entrepreneurs

Martynovich, Mikhail LU (2015) DRUID Academy Conference 2015
Abstract
The paper investigates the role of mobile entrepreneurs in spatial diffusion process of a rapidly expanding industry using

the case of the knowledge-intensive ICT-services in Sweden over 1990-2010. The main contributions of this study are

twofold. On the one hand, paper contributes to entrepreneurship research by showing that the spatial origin of an

entrepreneur should be analysed not only in terms of local/non-local dichotomy but should more explicitly account for

where she moves from. On the other hand, the paper demonstrates that mobile entrepreneurs are important drivers of

spatial diffusion of an industry, which might be of an interest to economic geography scholars.
