In recent years, countries have adopted policies seeking to promote the development and adoption of innovative digital technologies and grow their entrepreneurial ecosystems. In this paper, we review and analyze the vast literature on how digital technologies foster the birth, development and growth of new ventures and how these firms employ these technologies to shape the evolution of their ecosystems. Our analyses highlight the intimate links among ecosystem development, digital technologies and the active role that new ventures play, depicting a complex evolutionary process. We also discuss the role of pioneering, disruptor and imitator digital new ventures in the growth of their ecosystems. We also discuss the theoretical, policy and managerial applications of our work.
