Using a cross-section of Nasdaq and NYSE-listed foreign companies, we examine the impact of financial and innovation variables on the registration. We find a strong association between the variables and Nasdaq. This suggests that Nasdaq-type financial stock market has a link with the enterpreneurial ecosystem. The availability of high-tech firms is strongly associated with funding and research availabilities.
