In recent years, there have been vigorous debates on whether restricting the operations of foreign multinational enterprises (MNEs) through various protectionist policies would allow local entrepreneurs to flourish. Research suggests that, although knowledge spillovers from MNEs can provide positive impetus to local entrepreneurship, MNE may also crowd out entrepreneurial firms. In this study, we examine how policies restricting MNEs’ entry affect local entrepreneurship, especially the diversity...

It is common for articles in the business and management field that employ China as a sample to still place that research in the stream of transition and/or emerging economies. Such a rendering was accurate 40 years ago as China’s economic reforms began. However, China no longer meets the definitional characteristics of “emerging economies” that of low income, rapid economic growth with institutional instability, and a reliance on low cost production to drive this growth. China is one of a numbe...

Organizational theory recognizes reputation as a central element to understanding the firm. Examining investor valuations of 1,676 initial public offerings (IPOs) in the United States from 1990 to 2011, we find that reputation transfer through an association of an IPO firm with a venture capital (VC) firm represents a resource whose value can increase/decrease over time depending on investors’ valuations of prior IPOs funded by a VC firm. We conclude that the impact of reputation transfer throug...

Institutional theorists have long recognized that board interlocks serve as conduits of information, which can facilitate mimetic isomorphism under conditions of uncertainty. In contrast, the potential for coercive isomorphism—which is a response to direct coercion rather than uncertainty—to spread through board interlocks remains unknown. Drawing on the forced compliance literature from social psychology, we propose that coercive isomorphism exhibits a ripple effect, whereby conforming to coerc...

Entrepreneurship is widely argued to be critical for alleviating extreme poverty. However, research on this topic is characterized by diverging perspectives regarding poverty alleviation and remains fragmented across various research domains. This review examines 77 leading academic journals over the period 1990 to 2017 and identifies over 200 articles on entrepreneurship and poverty alleviation. The analysis of these articles highlights three different underlying perspectives: poverty alleviati...

Despite intense efforts by development organizations to generate entrepreneurial growth in base-of-the pyramid (BOP) markets over the past several decades, the result has been largely a proliferation of ventures that simply imitate existing business. To achieve a more sustainable and transformative level of development, local entrepreneurs must hone the ability to identify new and more innovative business opportunities. While current theory offers two competing descriptions of how entrepreneurs ...

Building on institutional theory, this study examines the effects of dysfunctional competition and government ties on new venture performance in transition economies. And, it goes deeper to investigate how these effects are contingent on a new venture's entrepreneurial orientation (EO). It finds that EO weakens the negative relationship between dysfunctional competition and new venture performance but exacerbates the negative linkage of government ties to new venture performance. The findings no...
