Adams Publishes Article on Early Silicon Valley Entrepreneurship

Dr. Stephen Adams, professor of management and marketing in SU’s Franklin P. Perdue School of Business, recently published the article “From Orchards to Chips: Silicon Valley’s Growing Entrepreneurial Ecosystem” in the international journal Entrepreneurship and Regional Development. In the article, Adams discusses how Silicon Valley’s early start-ups relied on inherited resources, institutions and know-how.

An ecosystem of universities and San Francisco-based commercial banks and law firms fostered innovation in California’s agriculture and extractive industry, and then (with federal government support) was repurposed in the 1940s for defense-based electronics and telecommunications, Adams said. After 1960, the ecosystem was transformed through the addition of venture capital and high-tech law firms for the consumer world of calculators, video games and personal computers.

Perdue Faculty Article Among Most Cited

An article co-authored by two professors of management and marketing in the Perdue School, has been named one of the journal Organizational Dynamics’ most cited.

“Mondragon’s Amorphous Network Structure: Making the Whole Truly Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts” was published in 2018 by Drs. Olivier Roche and Frank Shipper (emeritus) of the Management and Marketing Department, along with Drs. Frederick Freundlich of Mondragon University and Charles Manz of the University of Massachusetts Amherst. It is based on their study of the employee-owned management model used by Spain’s Mondragon Corp.
