Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Economic Development
Entrepreneurship and innovation can help spur economic development and thus address critical issues and enhance value in important sectors by
- generating new ways to serve people whose needs are not currently being met,
- better addressing those needs that are being met, or
- doing either or both at lower cost.
The RAND Environment, Energy, and Economic Development Program, in conjunction with the Kauffman-RAND Institute for Entrepreneurship Public Policy, examines the nexus of entrepreneurs, innovation and technology, and economic development.
