If HP established a branch of his company’s research lab in Singapore, the government played an important role through its Economic Development Board (EDB). Chris Whitney, director of the laboratory, examined the revenue from the laboratory to generate innovations, making it financially independent of corporate finance. The case examines HP history in Singapore, and the role of the EDB in promoting the growth of local R & D capabilities. The case raises questions about the sustainability of the funding model.
