    How does innovation impact on devel­opment? How, and under what condi­tions, do entrepreneurs in developing countries innovate? And what can be done to support innovation by entre­preneurs in developing countries? This policy brief addresses these questions and explains the relationship between entrepreneurship, innovation and devel­opment. Policy lessons are drawn from historical, cross­country and individual country experiences.
