  • The sharing economy and collaborative consumption: Strategic issues and
           global entrepreneurial opportunities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this paper is to analyze and discuss the topics of sharing economy and collaborative consumption (CC) within the domains of global entrepreneurial opportunities, strategic issues, and emerging online businesses. Both topics remain immensely rich and intertwined because of their interdisciplinary perspectives and multifaceted issues. The sharing economy and CC-based digital platforms clearly support and complement today’s business models, corporate expansion, and entrepreneurial growth. The sharing economy and CC models continue to grow yet can be disruptive in international entrepreneurship. The paper investigates the sharing economy as well as CC in ten sectors (73 firms) from the perspective of “commercial sharing systems” (Lamberton and Rose 2012, p. 109). Findings of the paper reveal that the two topics distinctly remain interconnected when dealing with their business models, entrepreneurial initiatives, and consumers in global markets. The work systematically lays the foundation for future research in the international entrepreneurship literature and its related areas. Companies that pursue the areas of sharing-based systems tend to be inherently innovative and venturesome in their business models and digital platforms. The paper also provides a research agenda and managerial implications of this timely discussion that continues to grow in international entrepreneurship.

  • The evolving international entrepreneurship orientations and international
           entrepreneurship capital in the rapidly changing and digitizing
           international environments

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The relationship between entrepreneurial orientations and internationalization has been examined extensively, but the recent developments in the rapidly changing environment point to the need for further examination of international entrepreneurs’ orientations in their own embedding contexts and beyond. There is ample evidence suggesting a positive relationship between the firm’s combined overall international entrepreneurial orientation, its extent of innovativeness, export (or international marketing), collaborative, and socio-cultural orientations and the scope and speed of its internationalization. The aim of this article is to examine the challenges and developments among the integral components of international entrepreneurial orientations and their associated activities, strategies, and resources to integrate their interactive impacts for better understanding of the broader concepts of international entrepreneurship orientations and international entrepreneurship capital in the increasing complexities of entrepreneurial internationalization processes.

  • Do CEO’s traits matter in innovation outcomes'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The study investigates the influence of CEO attributes on innovation outcomes on all firms listed on the SBF120 index between 2001 and 2013. We provide the following results. First, CEOs who graduate in business are less prone to introduce new products, while science-educated CEOs are more likely to increase the number of patents in high-technology firms. Second, the longer is the CEO tenure, the lower are the innovation outcomes, specifically in high-tech industry. Third, CEO owners are likely to invest in long-term profitable activities such as innovative projects. This drives more innovation outcomes. CEO founders, however, are more concerned about the implementation of new processes. Finally, robustness tests show that the number of patents decreases, on the long term, in the presence of female CEOs.

  • More power for international entrepreneurs: the effect of digital
           readiness of economies on channeling national R&D resources to
           entrepreneurship

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the economic paradigm of the twenty-first century, the increasing importance of innovation for SMEs and their global expansion motivates research on determinants of innovative entrepreneurship. While the literature suggests that R&D intensity improves innovative entrepreneurship, few studies explore why countries are different in directing R&D projects. Drawing on insights from the resource-based view and information economics perspective, this paper examines the effect of the digital readiness of an economy, as an emerging field in institutional literature, on channeling national R&D resources to entrepreneurs and SMEs. As R&D is an important source of innovativeness for SMEs, effective access to R&D resources enables new ventures to better compete in this challenging era of globalization and successfully expand across borders. We argue that having a more digitally advanced economy positively influences the transfer of national R&D to entrepreneurs and SMEs. We also argue that government entrepreneurship programs and lack of internal market dynamics highlight the positive role of digital readiness. Using a sample of more than 400 international observations across 7 years (2010–2016), we find strong support for our arguments. We empirically test the rarely acknowledged link between home country institutions and R&D transfer and shed light on country-level determinants of innovative entrepreneurship as a key source of competitive advantage in global markets. This study contributes to international entrepreneurship literature and augments our knowledge of comparative research on R&D transfer for a global investigation of entrepreneurship development.

  • Dynamic capabilities in sole proprietorships: theoretical model through
           grounded theory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this study is to identify the model that explains the process of creating dynamic capabilities of the sole proprietorships in the music industry. Following the design of the constructivist grounded theory, the cross-sectional study was carried out with 20 sole proprietorships in the music sector, with participants residing in 10 different countries. The study was conducted under inductive and abductive reasoning through the technique of the semi-structured interview. Through the comparative analysis, groups of businesses were identified as either resistant or dynamic, depending on their relationship to the components of dynamic capabilities. It was seen that sole proprietorships having greater interaction with these components were better adapted to the dynamic environment of the industry. Likewise, it was observed that the emotional factors of the owners are relevant for the development of dynamic capabilities in this type of business. This study proposed a substantive theory about the processes of development of dynamic capabilities in sole proprietorships. The contribution of the study is theoretical, practical, and methodological. A theoretical model is presented of the structure of the dynamic capabilities that are proposed as an adequate methodology for the design of grounded theory and the practical application by sole proprietorships. It is concluded that the sole proprietorships that develop the four components of the proposed model are able to develop dynamic capabilities and are distinguished by the actions taken in these processes and by their favorable results.

  • Subnational institutional configurations and international expansion of
           SMEs in emerging economies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In contrast to institutional studies based on comparisons between countries and based on a deterministic perspective that analyses the influence of institutions on the performance of the individual in emerging economies, the present research looks to the most recent versions of neo institutionalism and to the literature on entrepreneurship and international business in order to study (1) the existence of subnational institutional differences in emerging economies and (2) whether such differences relate to the international expansion of SMEs located in such territories. This study takes evidence from a sample of 296 entrepreneurs who founded their SMEs in the Federal State of Sergipe (Brazil) and analyses from a comparative perspective of six tourist municipalities located in that state. The results allow us to identify the existence of differences in the regulative, normative, and cognitive institutional dimensions between subnational territories and how such differences relate to the international expansion of SMEs located in each subnational territory.

  • Born globals’ decision-making logics during their entrepreneurial
           process

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract New entrepreneurial logics such as effectuation, bricolage, and causation have become increasingly important in the entrepreneurship literature since the early 2000s. Whereas several studies have shown the compatibility of the three logics over time, few have focused on their combination in the context of the emergence and subsequent international growth of born global firms. Using qualitative research involving seven cases of French born globals, we studied the mix of their decision-making approaches over a period of 11 years. Findings reveal the complementarity of the three logics and their adoption depending on the company’s stage of development and the specific challenges it faces. They highlight the importance of entrepreneurs’ awareness of their dominant mind-set for decision-making and the need to develop their skills in relation to the other mind-sets. Finally, they stress the need to be able to identify the stakeholders’ mind-set to align mutual decision-making processes.

  • How financing and information drive international corporate
           entrepreneurs’ innovations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This research combines the literature on social entrepreneurship and international corporate entrepreneurship to determine the relevance financial resources and information provided by different entities have for the innovation processes of international corporate entrepreneurs. We consider financing supplied by other companies, by national public sources, and by foreign sources; information might come from market and research sources. The study adopts an empirical approach, analyzing 4748 international entrepreneurial Spanish firms by employing the partial least squares technique. The results show the relevance of information and financing for international corporate entrepreneurs in developing strategic and social innovations. Social innovation is especially relevant because of its contribution to the creation of value in terms of employment enhancement and environmental protection. Finally, the results also suggest that the source that provides financial resources and information determines the type of innovation developed by these entrepreneurs.

  • Entrepreneurial choices depend on trust: Some global evidence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Interpersonal trust and people’s trust in institutions are important components of social capital, which has been shown to have not only innate social value but also diverse direct and indirect positive social and economic impacts. Using data for an economically and globally diverse group of countries, we examine empirically how changes in interpersonal trust and trust in institutions affect entrepreneurship over time. Our findings suggest that (1) enhancing either type of trust leads to more entrepreneurial activity and (2) an increase in interpersonal trust causes a structural change in the composition of the TEA-type entrepreneurship. Increased trust reduces the share of relatively lower value-added necessity-driven entrepreneurial activity and increases the share of higher value-added improvement-driven opportunity entrepreneurial activity (Schumpeterian entrepreneurship).

  • Innovation as an internationalisation determinant of Brazilian
           technology-based SMEs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The general objective of this article is to analyse innovation as a determinant of the internationalisation patterns of Brazilian technology-based SMEs (small and medium enterprises) in different sectors and with different technological features. The theoretical background of this article centres on the typologies of innovation, SMEs’ internationalisation patterns, and innovation as an internationalisation determinant. The main theoretical contributions of this qualitative study are its analysis of innovation of the firm, focusing on the type of innovation, the degree of novelty, and the degree of control over the innovation process as determinants of their internationalisation patterns, and the influence of the external organisational environment on innovation and internationalisation. In terms of managerial implications, we highlight the effect of these factors on the competitiveness of case firms in international markets. Finally, our suggestions for future studies include the need for research replication in other emerging markets, the inclusion of both mature and young technology-based SMEs in the sample, the use of longitudinal data for case studies, and the validation of this qualitative study through a quantitative study that includes a larger sample of technology-based SMEs.

  • Design-oriented policy interventions: The case of technology-based
           international entrepreneurship in emerging context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Research outcomes can contribute to achieving more accuracy, efficiency, and dynamism in policy interventions. In addition, the application of design models can help gain a better trade-off between precision and inclusiveness in policy practice. As a particular case, technology-based (TB) international entrepreneurship (IE) in developing contexts is a complex, heterogeneous, and dynamic phenomenon that poses considerable challenges to policy formulation. In this paper, we argue that using a contextualized design-based model of TB IE as the causation model results in higher integration and consistency between policy development and early internationalization dynamics and processes. In addition, we show that the design science approach provides a suitable framework for applying such a model in a recursive generative policy cycle. The proposed method has considerable theoretical and empirical implications in international entrepreneurship policy. The proposed scheme is evaluated in practice to verify and demonstrate its outcomes and impact.

  • Institutional change and entrepreneurship as occupational choice—The
           case of South Korea

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Even though research on the influence of institutions on entrepreneurial activities has recently gained scholarly attention, most studies are quantitative cross-country analyses that assume response homogeneity. Qualitative single-country studies that provide deeper insights into institutional peculiarities are still rare, especially in the East Asian context. Based on qualitative data generated from semi-structured interviews, this study examines the institutional environment for entrepreneurship in South Korea and its latest changes to explain the recent wave of newly established corporations. Building on Scott’s distinction of institutional dimensions, this article demonstrates how significant changes in regulative institutions pushed forward by the Korean central government have decreased individual financial risks and have created a surge in business foundations. At the same time, normative institutions have remained almost unchanged, while changes of the cognitive institutional dimension in the form of entrepreneurship education are underway. The findings suggest that regulative institutions play a bigger role for entrepreneurial activities than cognitive or normative institutions, as people start a business despite unfavorable informal institutions. Theory should therefore reevaluate the importance and effective power of each institutional dimension on entrepreneurial activities. Policymakers who put high emphasis on regulative institutions should pay attention to potential moral hazards arising from generous support programs.

  • Government support, strategic alliance and internationalization: Evidence
           from indigenous Ghanaian exporters

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The degree of internationalization requires a symbiotic relationship between, the state, competitor (as a domestic interfirm alliance) and international/foreign partner or agent to develop efficiency, competency, competitiveness and increase in international operations. This present study therefore assessed the mediating role of strategic alliance in the relationship between government support (financial and non-financial) and the degree of internationalization of indigenous firms. The study was a survey, with data gathered from 301 indigenous exporters, identified from the Ghana Export and Promotion Authority database. The reliability and validity of the data were tested using confirmatory factor analysis, with structural equation modelling as the main means of analysis, run using Amos v.23. The study concluded that both financial and non-financial government support had a significant positive effect on the degree of internationalization. These relationships were, however, partially mediated by the strategic alliance. Future studies could explore the same relationships, but looking beyond the government support, indigenous firms and the study of internationalization to include other external institutional elements such as socio-cultural factors.

  • The upcoming rise of SMEs in cross-border public procurement: is it a
           matter of networking capabilities'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The participation of SMEs in public procurement is a recurring theme in recent academic literature. However, little attention has been paid to its influence in cross-border procurement. To participate in this market, SMEs must overcome barriers that make the task difficult and minimise their chances of winning contracts. Within this context, dynamic capabilities in general, and networking ones in particular, are crucial to overcome barriers and boost performance. This article presents an abductive qualitative research study of multiple cases using CAQDAS to analyse which networking capabilities prepare SMEs for cross-border public procurement processes. The results show not only how these capabilities have enabled SMEs to perform well in this environment but also which barriers have helped them to overcome each phase of the procurement process. The article also provides recommendations for both SMEs that decide to enter this market and the administrations that wish to support them.

  • The impact of human, social, and psychological capital on academic
           spin-off internationalization

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Academic spin-offs (ASOs) are companies with a strong international vocation for two main reasons: first, they market their products and services in global market niches to profit from their high investment in R&D, characteristic of the sectors in which ASOs operate; and second, as a consequence of the international training and experience and of the international networks that the founding academic entrepreneurs of these companies tend to enjoy, derived from their scientific activity. Despite this natural tendency to internationalize, ASOs and specifically the founding academic entrepreneurs of these companies present certain difficulties in accessing resources for internationalization and in achieving credibility in foreign markets due to their university origins. Based on the resource-based view (RBV), and network theory (NT), this work proposes that the human capital, the social capital, and the psychological capital of the academic entrepreneur could compensate for these obstacles, providing key resources for the internationalization of their companies. The results contribute to the RBV, NT, and academic entrepreneurship and internationalization literature since they show that human capital, in terms of the international experience and training of the academic entrepreneur, their networks of relationships with international academic agents, and their psychological capital, are all antecedents of the internationalization of ASOs. However, the networks of academic entrepreneur relationships with international market agents appear to be irrelevant in the process of international expansion of ASOs.

      Abstract: Abstract Despite an increasing number of studies identifying factors that influence the internationalization process for early internationalizing firms (EIFs), it remains unclear which of these numerous factors could play a strategic role and, more specifically, when. This paper develops a new conceptual framework anchored in the resource-based view to identify strategic resources that can explain EIFs’ internationalization process accurately over time. Building on a systematic literature review based on 102 papers covering a period of 29 years, we methodically present a phase-by-phase observation of EIFs’ internationalization process to identify the strategic relevance of different influential resources. The results highlight the importance of the shift from individual to organizational resources, which occurs at a critical phase of transition from the entry to the post-entry phase. Studying the evolution of strategic resources along four phases allows us to determine that the progress of EIFs through the phases of their internationalization process is closely linked to their resources’ development process. This study suggests some promising research avenues, at theoretical and methodological levels, and results in a series of concrete recommendations intended for entrepreneurs and/or managers of EIFs.

  • International entrepreneurial opportunity: A systematic review,
           meta-synthesis, and future research agenda

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In recent decades, the concepts of international entrepreneurial opportunity (IEO) have attracted the consideration of many scholars and have proliferated in the international entrepreneurship (IE) literature. Since 2005, the concepts of IEO have become an emerging and evolving stream of research in international entrepreneurship studies, so this article examines the gaps, themes, and trends in IEO research from 2005 to early 2019. The primary purpose of this article is to understand the current state of the art in the field of IEO by examining the boundaries of its knowledge and eventually proposing future research agenda for scholars. To achieve this goal, we utilize a systematic literature review process and meta-synthesis methodology. We select studies and synthesize them based on defined elements and represent summary tables and figures according to these processes. First, we extract quantitative information from articles to gain a perception of the trends in prior studies. Second, we consider the purpose and focus of the IEO research to find out the critical concepts. Finally, we conclude by presenting several directions for future studies based on the knowledge gaps in prior IEO research.

  • Are born global firms really a “new breed” of exporters' Empirical
           evidence from an emerging market

      Abstract: Abstract This study investigates and compares born global (BG) firms and non-BG firms in Malaysia. We employed the multigroup analysis technique with structural equation models to test six hypotheses to determine the differences and similarities between two proposed models of BG and non-BG firms across a wide range of industries. The study reveals differences between the antecedents of marketing capabilities for BGs versus non-BGs, indicating that the performance enabling mechanisms differ between the groups. More precisely, the ability of BG firms to convert digital and entrepreneurial orientations into marketing capabilities is found to be a distinguishing characteristic of these firms. Moreover, non-BGs utilize government support to build marketing capabilities and obtain superior performance in the international market. This result suggests that governmental export promotion initiatives in Malaysia should be adjusted to increase relevance for BGs. The findings indicate that marketing capabilities play an essential role in the international market performance of both BGs and non-BGs. An important implication is that managerial focus and actions need to be adjusted depending on the type of firm. The two types of firms are not equal; if they are managed similarly, misjudgment will arise.
