As part of this work, field visits are being undertaken in each of the cities involving interviews with relevant stakeholders to gain insights into the entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem that has developed in the city. The study aims to gain a deeper understanding of the key factors at play, with one of the aims being to analyze how these factors differ across globe, and the impact these have on each ecosystem. As the study develops, the research team hope to share these findings with leading stakeholders in each city.
