Yup. I used to think the first of these was the most important component for regional growth, but later came to realize the last two were the key. Fun facts; research indicated (a few years back) that start ups by women had a much higher survival rate over the first five years than those started by men. But, and it's a big but, the businesses started by men, if they survived, grew at a much faster rate. This was fodder for some policy development work undertaken by the Women's Enterprise Initiative..
