Johnson, D. and Bock, A. J. (2015) Regenerative medicine translation: cross-national analysis of entrepreneurial ecosystem development. Academy of Management Proceedings, 2015(1), 12653. (doi: 10.5465/ambpp.2015.12653abstract)

In the field of regenerative medicine, new ventures face unformed markets and inconsistent industry practices. We study two university- centric regenerative medicine ecosystems to explore the characteristics of venturing activity and ecosystem development under irreducible uncertainty. The situational analysis reveals multi- level effects. At the micro-level, entrepreneurial coping strategies are significantly affected by cultural artifacts generated by the ecosystem university. At the macro-level, entrepreneurial ecosystems may develop along different paths, generating idiosyncratic contexts for venturing activity. A model of entrepreneurial ecosystem development is presented, with implications for theories of entrepreneurial behavior as well as policy practice in developing technology sectors.
