More recently, Glaser (2000) emphasizes the importance of common pools of talent, which allow firms to cluster together in regional agglomerations, as opposed to inter-firm linkages. Finally, Gottlieb (1994; 1995) stresses that high tech firms choose locations based on residential and lifestyle amenities. However, none of this existing literature explores the location choice process and preferences for a world-class firm seeking potential talent and labour not yet realized. Therefore, this presentation will advance the main hypothesis that the economic geography of a high technology firm will be attracted to a region that enables and facilitates low barriers of entry for potential global talent. It will also build on the existing literature, which explores the factors that attract talent and shape its economic geography. As well, in light of providing a locational decision for potential talent, the notion of jurisdictional advantage (Feldman and Martin 2005) will be used in order to provide the theoretical foundation needed to set the stage for the creation of the development of a new location theory called "Potencia."
