Boston Innovation Culture 4 -- Equity Culture

A few posts back I reported on work I’ve done comparing innovation in Boston and California. I argued that Silicon Valley beats Boston by a mile in it’s “recombination” capability: quick focus of energy and resources on new opportunities like the PC and the internet. Recombination is enabled by three things: an entrepreneurial community, “open” systems, and an equity culture. [There is a link to the complete presentation, Strengthening the Massachusetts Innovation Culture, at the end of this post.]
