By bridging literature on resource partitioning and markets for technology, this article proposes that companies that pursue a broad (focused) product strategy buy more (less) technology in the market but sign fewer (more) deals as technology suppliers. Furthermore, an alignment between product and technology market strategies increases firms’ survival chances: Companies that pursue a broad (focused) product strategy are more likely to prosper when they buy (sell) technology in the market. To te...

Most technology startups are set up for exit through acquisition by large corporations. In choosing when to sell, startups face a tradeoff.

Moreover, the buyer’s decision to invest in absorptive capacity is related to the startup’s decision about the timing of the exit sa...

This paper studies how product-market competition affects firms’ innovation strategies. Do firms respond to tougher competition by searching for completely new solutions (exploration) or do they defend their position by improving current solutions (exploitation)? To obtain exogenous variation in product-market competition and estimate its causal effect on innovation strategies, we exploit changes in import penetration, which we instrument using exchange rates and scheduled tariffs. We find that ...

Abstract Do firms gain environmental legitimacy when they conform to external expectations regarding the natural environment? Drawing on institutional logic and signaling theory, we investigate sources of heterogeneity in the impacts of environmental actions on environmental legitimacy. Longitudinal data (1997–2001) about 325 publicly traded U.S. firms in polluting industries support the notion that environmental actions help firms gain environmental legitimacy. However, some actions instead can...

We show that the legal rules regarding the ability of co-owners of patents to license the patented technology to third parties have important implications not only for licensing, the diffusion of the patented technology, and hence downstream competition but also for the decision to share ownership in the first place. The legal rules that regulate shared ownership also affect efforts provided by the parties at the invention stage and hence impact the quality of the patented technology. We rely on...
