Abstract

Recent studies show innovation is a driving force in the current U.S. textile and apparel market. In our review of current studies on Entrepreneurial Innovation, we find many weaknesses in measurements in both the types of responses and in the types of innovations. There are few entrepreneurial studies in the literature focused on the textile and apparel industries. We have used a constitutive approach to entrepreneurial innovation that postulates that the entrepreneurs and their environments are co-created. The Autio et al.[1] framework for entrepreneurial innovation and contexts is investigated by in-depth interviews of textile and apparel entrepreneurs.

Keywords: Entrepreneurial innovation, innovation eco-system, textile entrepreneurship
