Resource Allocation Among Competing Innovators
Many innovative products are designed to satisfy the demand of specific target consumers; thus, the innovators will inevitably compete with each other in the product market.

The study finds that, as the available resources increase, the optimal diversification of investment may first increase and then decrease.
