The Founder Group Company has been leading the world in pictographic-language electronic publishing systems technology. With its experience in developing sophisticated pictographic font-processing technologies, Founder has developed a series of high-resolution colour electronic publishing systems that enable it to compete with the world's leading colour electronic publishing systems developers, such as Linotype–Hell of Germany and Adobe of the United States. This chapter documents the changing organization of innovation in the rise of Founder. The central focus is on the transformation of the organization of industrial innovation from being government-led to being enterprise-centred. As such, Founder's experience has far reaching implications for the ability of new Chinese science and technology enterprises to compete in the global information technology (IT) industry.
