In this paper, the theory of hypercycle is applied to study the mechanism of the forming and evolution of the firm's innovation networks. The networks' genes and enzymes which control the genes' copy are looked into. It is concluded that it is the hypercycle that contributes to the forming and evolution of the firm's innovation networks as it does to the origin and evolution of the life. The forming and evolutionary process of the firm's innovation networks is characterized as self-organization, self-enhancement, mutual enhancement and co-evolution.
