In particular, the development of high technology ventures has been viewed as both a revitalization tool for developed market economies, such as the USA, and a driving force for economic transformation in transition economies, such as China.

New ventures have played a significant role in the world’s economic and social development. In particular, the development of high technology ventures has been viewed as both a revitalization tool for developed market economies, such as the USA, and a driving force for economic transformation in transition economies, such as China. With a focus on new technology ventures in China’s emerging market, this volume brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines and countries to provide a comprehensive understanding of this phenomenon.

New technology ventures are highly vulnerable to environmental selection because they lack adequate knowledge of their environments, new product experience, and managerial and financial resources. Thus, these ventures tend to have high failure rates. Not surprisingly, a major stream of research in strategic management and entrepreneurship literature has focused on identifying the strategies that new technology ventures use to offset their liability of newness in order to improve their performance. However, previous studies have been done in the context of developed markets. This volume explores how new ventures successfully grow in China’s transition economy where strategic factor markets and institutional frameworks have not been developed in this context. Significant issues addressed in this volume include:

• Factors contributing to the growth of technology entrepreneurship in China
• Ownership and survival of technology ventures in China
• Challenges faced by venture capitalists in China
• Growth strategies and environment-strategy interaction in Chinese technology ventures
• Organizational control and reward and technology innovation in Chinese technology ventures
• Political risks of foreign ventures in China’s emerging market
• R&D globalization and internationalization strategy of Chinese technology ventures.

The contributors’ conclusions will be highly valuable to managers of new technology ventures and to Western firms attempting to enter the high technology industries in China. Researchers interested in new technology ventures and innovation will also find this volume a useful addition to their libraries.
