Abstract:Many countries have been influenced by Corporate Governance for very good reasons. But there seems to be a downside to this. For instance, Denmark currently has a larger number of entrepreneurs per capita than the USA. However, at the same time, the net growth from start‐ups is close to zero. This indicates that too few start‐ups survive and prosper in the long run. Also, the overall hit rate of Danish innovation projects has been measured to be as low as 6% 7%. This serves to illustrate the need for working systematically with innovative competence and management, perhaps even the need to supplement Corporate Governance with a form of Innovation Governance.
