Abstract
The problem of knowledge management in the context of offshoring is generally related to the issues of intellectual property rights defense [15, 6, 4]. This study differs from these research issues by the analysis of so called intellectual offshores from the viewpoint of regional economies. Intellectual off-shores are considered as specific tools for increasing efficiency of knowledge and technology transfer. One of the innovative methods for offshoring is the spatial crowd-investing. It is used for attracting funding to intellectual offshores development. Crowd-investing becomes increasingly popular in the conditions of limitedness of sources for investments. Intellectual off-shores are usually perceived as large infrastructure projects. Usually, when pooling funds for such projects, the minimal investment stock is fixed; this helps to limit the number of potential stakeholders and makes relationships between them more transparent and simple. It is worth noting also that such projects, in fact, erase the difference between institutional and private investors in their access to regional knowledge stock. It means that both institutions, as funds and private investors, can participate in large infrastructure projects funding and knowledge creating. The pooling of private stakeholders diminishes the regional budgets' burden and helps to solve the problem of effective knowledge and technology transfer within regional economies.
