  1. 1. Innova&on  Ecosystems  Summit   11  July  2011  
  2. 2. Innova&on  Ecosystems  Network   Innova&on  Ecosystems  refer  to  the  inter-­‐organiza&onal,   poli&cal,  economic,  environmental,  and  technological  systems   through  which  a  milieu  conducive  to  business  growth  is   catalyzed,  sustained,  and  supported.   A  dynamic  innova&on  ecosystem  is  characterized  by  a  con&nual   realignment  of  synergis&c  rela&onships  that  promote  growth  of   the  system.    In  agile  responsiveness  to  changing  internal  and   external  forces,  knowledge,  capital  and  other  vital  resources   flow  through  these  rela&onships.   The  Innova&on  Ecosystems  Network  is  an  interna&onal   consor&um  of  data  partners,  analysis  partners  and  community-­‐ of-­‐prac&ce  partners,  dedicated  to  iden&fica&on  and  visualiza&on   of  success  factors  in  technology-­‐based  development.   Through  research  collabora&ons,  quarterly  mee&ngs,  and   resource  sharing,  we  seek  to  iden&fy  paRerns  of  success  and  key   interven&on  points  in  innova&on  ecosystems  and  enhance   sharing  of  insights  among  the  diverse  groups  of  people.   Par&cipa&on  in  the  Innova&on  Ecosystems  Network  is  open  to   Media  X  member  companies  and  to  affiliated  partners.   -­‐  Martha  G.  Russell   Associate  Director  of  Media  X  at  Stanford  University     Senior  Research  Scholar  at  HSTAR  at  Stanford  University   Innova&on  Ecosystems  Network

Although alumni connections represent networks,evaluations tend to ignore network qualities, from which an alumni network getsits name. We show that by analyzing alumni connections as networks, it ispossible to reveal different characteristics of alumni networks.The figure shows ego-centric alumni networks of four universities (Stanford,Harvard, MIT, Berkeley) consisting of universities, alumni and companies thatalumni are associated with through employment, investment or board levelpositions. While alumni networks share many characteristics, differences amongalumni networks include ratio of companies/alumni, collaboration patterns (e.g.persistence of relationships), and new alumni metrics -- network measures.Innovation Ecosystems refer to the inter-organizational, political, economic,environmental, and technological systems through which a milieu conducive tobusiness growth is catalyzed, sustained, and supported.
