Founders can voluntarily exit their ventures via initial public offerings (IPOs). In this study, we build on power theory to develop and test a model of founder exit using a dataset of 313 founders from 177 entrepreneurial IPOs between 2002 and 2010. We largely find support for the model—a negative relationship between founder power and full exit. To capture the underlying mechanism of the power-exit relationship, we conducted two experiments in which we randomly assigned decision makers to eith...

How do corporate venture capitalists (CVCs) do deals? Conversations with CVCs suggest that the putative view of venture capital investing is incomplete. We draw on 13 cases of CVC programs to document eight 'corporate investment practices' that are unique to CVCs. These practices reflect pressure on the CVC units for strategic fit and engagement with the corporation and also an opportunity to utilize parental resources. We then show that CVCs vary their emphasis on corporate investment practices...

This study explores the effect of institutional origin (‘nurture’) and economic context (‘nature’) on the financial resource endowment and subsequent early employment growth of research-based spin-offs (RBSOs). The nurture dimensions capture the relationship between the parent research institution and the RBSO during the start-up phase: the type of incubation model, the formal vs informal transfer of technology and the extent of inventors’ involvement with the firm. The nature dimensions include...

Abstract This article explores some of the underlying forces that provoke local governments to participate in multi-level governance through the creation of networks at the local as well as European level. We focus on the European funding process within local governments to identify some differences in the process between the Italian and the English local government authorities. Subsequently we observe that entrepreneurship theory could assist in untangling and explaining this phenomenon; theref...

Through an inductive study of six corporate venture capital programs, we unravel how new organizational units resolve competing forces from two different institutional environments. The data suggest that the organizational structure of units that enter a new environment depends on whether they “focus their isomorphism” internally toward the parent (“endoisomorphism”) or externally toward the industry (“exoisomorphism”). The focus of isomorphism depends on whom the units seek legitimacy with and ...

Abstract This article contributes to the understanding of European Local Governance by exploring the European funding networks developed within local areas under Objective 2 of the Structural Funds. The article describes the EU funding networks (within the theoretical perspective of network theory) and examines the relationship between the presence of local EU funding networks and councils' success in accessing EU funds. This exploratory study focuses on the appearance of policy networks at the ...

Drawing on the theory of planned behaviour, this study tests the effect of entrepreneurship programmes on the entrepreneurial attitudes and intentions of science and engineering students. This is necessary in order to confirm (or disconfirm) conventional wisdom that entrepreneurship education increases the intention to start a business. The results show that the programmes raise some attitudes and the overall entrepreneurial intention and that inspiration (a construct with an emotional element) ...
