The effect of regional differences on the
performance of software firms in the
Netherlands
Ron A. Boschma and Anet B.R. Weterings
Abstract

This paper aims to explore the effect of regional differences on the
performance of software firms in the Netherlands. Inspired by evolutionary
economics, we account for the impact of: (1) co-******** and sharing a local
knowledge ****; (2) pre-entry experience in the same or related industries;
(3) being connected; and, (4) having organizational capabilities to cope with
change. The outcomes of the regression analyses on data gathered among
265 software firms suggest that firms located in regions specialized in ICT
have a higher innovative productivity. Spin-offs and firms with organizational
capabilities also perform better, while network relationships do not affect
the performance of software firms. The effect of regional differences on the
performance of software firms in the
Netherlands
