Engaging in exploration and exploitation is essential to business survival and performance. While firms manage exploration and exploitation alliances for the long-term, how prepared are they for sudden shocks in the short-term? We address this question in the context of a unique and opportune natural experiment associated with the 2008 financial crisis. Our analysis of 155 new biopharmaceutical ventures over a seven-year period suggests that exploration alliances – with a long-term orientation –...

But, is this always the case? While entrepreneurial action may often be the result of a judgmental decision (between alternative courses of action/inaction), the presumption that reasoned judgment encompasses all the motives, modes and mechanisms leading to entrepreneurial outcomes seems dubious.

A vital aspect of entrepreneurial action is the translation of entrepreneur’s opportunity into new value creation. This paper examines the moderating roles of the founder’s experience and innovation degree on the relationship between opportunity confidence and new value creation intention (NVCI) at the pre-founding stage of a business. For this purpose, it uses survey data from 157 prospective entrepreneurs in the ICT industry from university incubators in Iran. Using SEM, we find that experienc...
