Technoentrepreneurship is defined as the entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial activities of existing/developing companies operating in technology-intensive environments. Although technology-based entrepreneurship's role in economic development is widely acknowledged, IJTE is the only journal specifically focused on creating a sound, coherent literature on the topic. IJTE provides in-depth discussion on a wide range of topics covering activities, institutions, policies, strategies and technologies. This is carried out both at the micro and macro level, offering a comprehensive view of the development of high-tech activities.

  • Industry perspectives on high-tech new venture creation and development
  • Product development for high-tech ventures, university technology transfers
  • Geographical/regional perspectives, analysis of country/regional context from the perspective of high-tech firms
  • Corporate venturing, alliances in growth-oriented high-tech industries
  • Family business development in technology-intensive environments
  • Innovation issues, including financing; venture capital

More on this journal...

The objective of IJTE is to provide a platform of exchange for academics, researchers, managers and policy makers interested in the issues faced by entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in fast-pacing technology intensive activities. The international dimension is now compulsory in the growing global technological world from Silicon Valley to Bangalore, from Helsinki to China...


IJTE provides a vehicle to help academics, researchers, policy makers and professionals working in the field of development of high-tech activities at the business, industry, regional and international levels to disseminate and share valuable information.


IJTE publishes original papers, case studies, book reviews, interviews with eminent scholars or practitioners. We particularly would like to encourage PhD students and practitioners to submit their work and join the ecosystem of experts or experts-to-be in the field of entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in technology intensive businesses. Special issues devoted to important topics in Technoentrepeneurship will occasionally be published.

As the Editorial Board, we would like to encourage you to consider the journal not only as an academic outlet for research but also as a platform to increase the knowledge in the field by offering a wide-range of possibilities, including:

  • enabling groups of researchers to share their research data
  • sharing interviews with "high-tech" entrepreneurs
  • showing the impact of the research for business, society and entrepreneurs
  • offering a series of "technical notes" that will introduce a specific technology tool for entrepreneurs
  • informing about books that deserve attention
  • introducing a macro review of technologies and countries.
