Abstract: Although the literature examines firm creation from a geographical perspective, it is necessary to take a closer look at aspects linked to location and the geographical and sectoral context, the generation and development of technology, research and development, different types of innovation and their effect on firm performance as well as their role in technological strategy, human resource management and the introduction of best practices. The objective of this special issue is to provide theoretical and empirical evidence that relates innovation and technological development with entrepreneurship and the geographical context.
Keywords: innovation; entrepreneurship; location; firm creation; firm performance; technological development.
