This chapter discusses Chinese indigenous innovation and the influence of global markets. This chapter questions whether Asian innovation efforts are primarily associated with imitation and efficient market exploitation, which has been found in previous theoretical and empirical research. In contrast to previous research, the findings differ, in that these ten Chinese knowledge intensive entrepreneurial ventures accord a low degree of importance to global knowledge, whereas their own internal skills and knowledge are the source of their innovations. Thus, these results capture novel empirical developments, and raise interesting questions about how this type of Chinese firm engages in domestic and international technological development, now and in the future.
