      Andrew Hargadon recounts an interesting story of failed low-tech innovation: construction companies in Florida introduced a new form of drywall, which has subsequently been found to be defective. The problem may affect as many as , homes, and the cost of replacing the drywall in all of them may run as high as $10 billion.

Innovation is not a new phenomenon. Arguably, it is as old as mankind itself. There seems to be something inherently “human” about the tendency to think about new and better ways of doing things and to try them out in practice. In spite of its obvious importance, innovation has not always received the scholarly attention it deserves. For instance, students of long-run economic change used Cited by:

There is a belief. The study takes a closer look into innovations in high- and low-tech small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Europe, and proves that low-tech and innovation is not as far apart, as you might think. Low-tech companies invest on average 10 percent of their total income in innovation.

This article considers not just traditional “low-tech” industries but also those classified by the Organization for Economic and Co-operation Development (OECD) as “medium-tech.” It combines them hereafter as “low- and medium-tech” (LMT) industries.

There is a widespread assumption that low-tech industries offer limited opportunities for entrepreneurial activity due to their mature character. In Panel B, we split the sample by the median value of the KZ index, which captures firms’ financial constraints.

In Panel C, we split the sample according to whether firms belong to high-tech or low-tech industries, following the industry classification of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ().
