Abstract

In Japan a new type of entrepreneur is changing the traditional styles of management. Entrepreneurial firms are entering corporate networks in order to exchange and to develop knowledge resources.

This article identifies and discusses the principal factors of “interpreneurship” as a new management concept. Japanese style interpreneurship is further compared with the Schumpeterian view of economic change.
