Abstract

Innovation has an essential impact on SME creation, and governments are concerned with stimulating adoption of innovation by SMEs to strengthen growth and development and adapt to the ever-changing business environment. Innovation by SMEs requires operating within a generally embracing economic and financial environment. The availability of various formal and informal financing options and a growing economy encouraging consumer spending, innovation-driven investment spending and export, and a policy favoring enhancing private equity, economic diversification, and market competition are incipient factors contributing to a culture of private initiatives by entrepreneurs and SMEs.
