Research interests

My research interest over the last 10 years has been to develop a methodology to identify micro, small & medium enterprises (MSME) that have the potential to create high value or wealth in an economy. By Identifying these 'high performing' microenterprises termed as 'anchor firms' the aim is to develop collaborative knowledge networks (CKNs) between these identified firms to create foothold markets in sunrise sectors.
