Towards an Understanding of Open Innovation Ecosystems Dynamics: The Case of Montreal New Tech


Published: 18Jan2021

December 7, 2020 | By observing the Montreal region's innovation ecosystem, this research paper, co-written by Max Bell School MPP student Eunice Mercado-Lara, presents a study case that aims to understand the main success factors for open innovation ecosystems (Chesbrough, 2003; Grandstrand & Holgersson, 2020). According to Eunice's research, thriving open innovation ecosystems require community-building platforms to articulate their main components (Actors, artifacts, and activities). Within Montreal's innovation ecosystem, we can observe umbrella organizations' emerging role, like Montreal New Tech, articulating and enlarging the existing innovation platform. This paper analyses the role of these collaboration catalyzers to understand their impact on the innovation ecosystems better.
