The knowledge economy has been described as the production and provision of services based on knowledge-intensive activities. It contributes to the accelerating pace of scientific and technical advances. One of the key components of a knowledge economy is nurturing startups and reliance on human capital, research, intellectual capabilities, and development.
Economic growth depends on an economy’s ability to develop and commercialize innovative items and services and develop new technologies.
Startups and SMEs have helped develop new technologies and bring up new ideas in recent years. These companies are shaped successfully when they are formed in a supportive entity like a science park.
