About this book

The Entrepreneurial Rise in Southeast Asia examines the start-up scene environments in Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia. The contributors to this volume explore government strategies to support start-up communities, local challenges, and unique strengths of each country. They answer key questions framing policy and strategic decision-making at the firm, industry, national, and regional levels, such as: How does technological advance occur, and what are the process and institutions involved? Which cultural characteristics serve to promote or impede innovation? And, in what ways is wealth distributed or concentrated?

Reviews

"We're moving from a managerial into an entrepreneurial society. Can a Silicon Valley-like entrepreneurial ecosystem evolve in Southeast Asia? How do Southeast Asian (wanna-be) entrepreneurs, start-up financiers, government and non-government organizations plan to seize the multitude of opportunities offered in times of the innovation economy? Discover answers to these important questions in this timely book with vignettes of the creative, financial, human, and ecological side of creative entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia." - Detlef Reis, Founder and Chief Ideator, Thinkergy Limited; Lecturer in Business Creativity and Creative Leadership, College of Management, Mahidol University, Thailand; Adjunct Associate Professor, Hong Kong Baptist University

"As a design and product development professional living in Bangkok, Sindakis and Walter's collection, Entrepreneurial Rise in Southeast Asia, is a MUST-read for not only students and professionals like myself, but for industry leaders looking to grow and prosper in the creative economy.
