Most technology startups are set up for exit through acquisition by large corporations. In choosing when to sell, startups face a tradeoff. Early acquisition reduces execution errors but later acquisition improves the likelihood of finding a better match since in the early market, there are fewer buyers because early acquisition requires costly absorptive capacity. 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.

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...
