  • Applying the circular economy to a business model: an illustrative case
           study of a pioneering energy company
    • Authors: Ville-Veikko Piispanen, Kaisa Henttonen, Eeva Aromaa
      Pages: 236 - 248
      Abstract: While the circular economy (CE) has awakened discussion in business model literature, understanding of the circular business model (CBM) and value-creation opportunities in practice has been limited. This study focuses on one sustainable business model archetype: creating value from waste. It supports sustainable development by material circulation. We aim to provide an answer to the question of how a company converts its resources and capabilities into economic value by creating value from waste. This single case study in the Finnish energy sector focuses on a pioneering company applying CBM. The analysis more specifically illustrates the nine main elements of a business model: customer value proposition, segments, customer relationships, channels, key resources, key activities, partners, costs and revenues. Furthermore, we illustrate the internal and external adoption factors required to transform a business model canvas (BMC) to a CBM framework.

  • Platform-based sustainable business models: reducing food waste in
           food services

         This is an Open Access Article Open Access Article

    • Authors: Malla Mattila, Nina Mesiranta, Anna Heikkinen
      Pages: 249 - 265
      Abstract: Food waste is a growing sustainability challenge for companies operating in the food services sector in developed countries. In this study, we examine how platform-based business models for food waste reduction can contribute to sustainability. We draw from the literature on business sustainability, sustainable business models (SBMs), and digital platforms, scrutinising two real-life business cases that provide digital services that help food service companies to reduce their food waste. Our findings identify the value network (user, producer, and support networks) and sustainable value proposition (economic, environmental, and social dimensions) as key elements for addressing sustainability in platform-based businesses. The study contributes to the SBM literature by developing an empirical and systemic understanding of platform-based SBMs. The cases illustrate that these SBMs have the potential to contribute to sustainability through scalability and attractiveness. From a managerial standpoint, the study offers companies insights into how to develop sustainability in their business operations.

  • Show it with feeling: performed emotions in critical sensemaking
    • Authors: Eeva Aromaa, Päivi Eriksson, Tero Montonen
      Pages: 266 - 280
      Abstract: This article draws attention to emotion in sensemaking within small entrepreneurial organisations. More specifically, it illustrates how performed emotion is related to enactment of a formative context, sensemaking and agency. The article also enriches the critical sensemaking heuristic by exploring a conversation between a leader and employees concerning adoption of a new online service. The analysis is based on videotaped data gathered from a two-year study of a franchise-based rental and real estate company. The contributions of the article are two-fold: 1) it argues that performed emotions are important because they may have an influence on the sensemaking of others and the possibility of exercising agency; 2) it demonstrates that videotaped material is a fertile source of data for studies on critical sensemaking in small entrepreneurial organisations.
      Keywords: emotion; critical sensemaking; formative context; agency; franchising; entrepreneurship; innovation; leader; employee; online service; video

  • Dare to defy the challenges of online business
    • Authors: Ruchi Jain, Ruchi Khandelwal
      Pages: 281 - 294
      Abstract: The innerwear industry is one of the less researched businesses in India and is dealt as niche vertical of apparel industry. For the yesteryear's customers, buying innerwear was a covert and backroom affair but globalisation, internet and bright entrepreneurial ideas have changed the trajectory. Taking leverage of changing industry dynamics, a budding entrepreneur – Pallavi Khandelwal dared to step into this less explored territory. She banked upon her entrepreneurial skills and strategic decision-making for creating an identity through her internet-based startup to optimise the opportunity and defy the challenges of online business arena. The case serves as the setup to elaborate the aspirations and obstacles confronted by a budding entrepreneur. It provides perfect background to understand how strategic options, resource requirements and critical success factors (CSFs) undergo transformation with the different stages of business life cycle. Industry analysis conducted through references gathered from various reports by business consultancies, industry players, and whitepapers written on this field accompanied an in-depth personal interview with the protagonist Pallavi Khandelwal for establishing facts and data used in the case. Literature review and academic experience of authors are steered to establish the theoretical underpinning of the case.
      Keywords: innerwear industry; entrepreneurial opportunity; bootstrapping; critical success factors; CSFs; entrepreneurial decision-making; online business

  • University spin-off managers and the 'ideal' funding process
    • Authors: Olli-Matti Nevalainen, Päivi Eriksson, Tero Montonen
      Pages: 295 - 307
      Abstract: This article explores the university spin-off financing process through the experiences of the managers who act as surrogate entrepreneurs in these companies. Based on narrative interviews, managers' experiences of the financing process were analysed through a meta-micro-narrative approach. The findings highlight how managers' micro-narratives, based on local understandings of the values, roles and contributions of investors during different funding cycles, construct alternatives to the 'ideal' funding process represented by the meta-narrative. The findings contribute to the discussion of entrepreneurial and spin-off finance by illuminating the entrepreneurs' perspective.

      Pages: 308 - 319
      Abstract: Santosh Satyanarayanji Didwaniya, the entrepreneur of Maharaja Masala Udyog, Khamgaon led his Udyog from mere 15-16 kilograms of mixed spices sale to a monthly turnover of 25,000 kilograms of Maharaja Mix Garam Masala capturing 75% to 80% of market and claiming an annual growth of 7% to 8%. The unbelievably successful entrepreneurial odyssey of Santoshbhai is embedded with single product sale through zero level distribution channel with a negligible modernisation of processing section and a very little modernisation of packaging and storage, and use of conventional management method. His consumers are so delighted with the unique taste and flavour of the Maharaja Mix Garam Masala that his market territory is fortified even amidst the presence of many multinational companies and some leading local brands. The case comprises rich knowledge and intense thought provocation relating to entrepreneurship and innovation management based on traditional management practices and niche marketing concepts.

  • Network characteristics and the adoption of organisational innovation in
           the food sector
    • Authors: Zam-Zam Abdirahman, Ghasem Shiri, Loic Sauvée
      Pages: 320 - 338
      Abstract: The purpose of this article is to assess the impact of network characteristics on non-technological, i.e., organisational innovations (hereafter OI), adopted by food companies. In the food sector context, we specifically put forward the importance of partnerships and networking activities, where this question is relevant. Indeed, relatively little is known about the importance of network characteristics, such as the diversity of partners or categories of networks (business clubs, technology parks, industry associations, …), for the adoption of OI. Based upon a sample of 348 European food companies we were able to test hypotheses linking network characteristics with the adoption of OI in the food sector. The results of the research highlight the positive effects of network competence, of heterogeneity of members and of the category of club networks on the adoption OI by food companies.

  • Examining conditions for successful entrepreneurship in China's firms
    • Authors: M. John Foster, Lorraine Watkins-Mathys
      Pages: 339 - 357
      Abstract: We examine the question of what factors might be likely to increase the probability of success for entrepreneurial activity by FIEs and domestic firms in China. We first examine the possibility of there being a distinct and separate notion of Chinese entrepreneurship but find that unlikely. The issue then becomes what contextual factors may be necessary to enable entrepreneurial activity in China to flourish and we locate four such factors. We acknowledge that our posited set of necessary factors is probably not a sufficient set but they are at the minimum a useful starting point.

  • Comparison of online customer ratings between the eco-labelled and
           non-eco-labelled hotels of Oslo
    • Authors: M. John Foster, Lorraine Watkins-Mathys
      Pages: 358 - 373
      Abstract: Online guest reviews are now playing an increasingly important role in consumer purchase decisions. Online booking websites are considered excellent sources of information, thanks to their millions of reviews. This paper contributes to research into eco-labels in the hospitality industry by discussing the online ratings of hotels with reference to different attributes, such as average daily rate, number of rooms, number of detailed reviews, and overall customer rating, as well as specific ratings for staff, value for money, location, facilities, comfort, cleanliness and free Wi-Fi. The results of this study indicate that there was a statistically significant difference between eco-labelled and non-eco-labelled hotels in terms of average daily rates and number of rooms. Eco-labelled hotels were found to have significantly better scores than non-eco-labelled hotels. However, there was no statistically significant difference between eco-labelled and non-eco-labelled hotels in terms of the number of detailed reviews and the customer ratings regarding the different attributes that measure customer satisfaction.

  • Practices for building innovation capabilities of local employees at
           German manufacturing subsidiaries in China
    • Authors: Wenqian Zhou, Vivek K. Velamuri
      Pages: 374 - 392
      Abstract: Many German multinational companies aim to transform their subsidiaries in China that previously solely focused on manufacturing into subsidiaries that also drive innovation. However, these companies face numerous challenges, due to local differences compared to the West. In order to facilitate the process, this paper studies practices for building innovation capabilities at German manufacturing subsidiaries in China, taking into account the local challenges. Based on in-depth interviews with managers in China, this study identifies three practices for driving the build-up of innovation capabilities within the subsidiary organisation: build knowledge, establish a mindset for innovation and increase measures for employee retention. The study adds to extant research by detailing these practices with approaches that target local challenges. Compared to the West, the local challenges include differences in skills and knowledge, culture, as well as work behaviour.

  • The influence of innovation stimulus, facilitating factors and support
           mechanisms on innovation performance in Brazilian small textile firms
    • Authors: Giancarlo Gomes, Antonio Majocchi, Joaquín Alegre, Linda Jessica De Montreuil Carmona
      Pages: 393 - 412
      Abstract: The ability of the organisation to develop new products is crucial in rapidly changing business environments, and thus, customer demographics, consumers' expectations and buying behaviour play an important role. Hence, exploring the antecedents of innovation performance becomes more important. This study analyses the relationships among innovation stimulus, facilitating factors and support mechanisms for innovative performance in the textile industry of Santa Catarina, Brazil. The sample included 128 respondents, who were all employees of five small and medium-sized textile firms; data were analysed using structural equation modelling. We found that innovation stimulus, facilitating factors and support mechanisms are correlated, while support mechanisms have no influence on innovation performance. The results also highlight a concern regarding the cost and time spent on developing innovation projects. This research contributes to innovation performance literature by analysing innovation antecedents including visions of innovation as both a process, represented by efficiency, and a result, represented by efficacy.
