South-South entrepreneurial collaboration in health biotech Paper

Download File

In recent decades, developing countries have sought to reduce their reliance on trade with the economically and politically dominant northern, or developed, countries, favoring instead South-South partnerships that synergize strengths and bolster competitiveness. Entrepreneurial firms in developing countries are increasingly aware of the opportunities in one another’s markets, as is evident from the 12.5% increase in the rate of South-South trade each year.

A survey of entrepreneurial collaborations among health biotech firms in developing countries reveals a surprisingly high level of collaboration but a lack of emphasis on new or improved health biotech products and processes.

This  paper is addressing South-South entrepreneurial collaboration in health in detail.
