|This book was first published in 2004. National ecomic growth is fueled by the development of high techlogy clusters such as Silicon Valley. The contributors examine the founding of ten clusters that have been successful at an early stage of growth in information techlogy. Their key finding is that the ecomics of starting a cluster is very different from the positive feedback loop that sustains an established cluster. While 'thing succeeds like success' in an established cluster, far more difficult, risky and unlikely are the initial conditions that give rise to successful clusters. The contributors find regularities in the start of the successful clusters studied, including Silicon Valley around 1964. These cases contain 'old ecomy' factors such as competencies, firm building capabilities, managerial skills, and connection to markets, more than the flamboyant 'new ecomy' factors that have been highlighted in prevailing years.|
