Abstract Geographically dispersed reservoirs of knowledge represent significant opportunities for multinational enterprises (MNEs), both in terms of feeding the firm's innovation process, as well as adapting technology to new markets. They face serious challenges in accomplishing these tasks, due to the well-known barriers associated with the transfer of knowledge out of its local context. We argue that ethnic inventors might play a role in alleviating these challenges, by acting as a bridge bet...

We explore how knowledge-based connections to domestic and foreign locations affect the technological scope of firm innovations. Inspired by a blend of Economic Geography and International Business perspectives, we propose a theoretical framework that distinguishes between domestic subnational differences and cross-national spatial heterogeneity. Further, we combine the Penrosean view of managerial capabilities with the attention-based theory of the firm. Analyzing a sample of US-based firms bet...

Purpose of the paper : In this work, we analyze the role of pre-divestiture performance on the divestiture’s value creation in the context of European countries. Specifically, we explore the existence of potential interaction effects between pre-divestiture performance and the presence of blockholder and the degree of relatedness between the divesting firm core business and the divested business unit. Methodology : Econometric analysis on a unique dataset of 147 divestitures across thirteen co...

We investigate the influence of the geography of host country knowledge sources developing different types of knowledge on the quality and generality of a foreign subsidiary innovation. We suggest that the quality of subsidiary innovation is greater when more familiar knowledge is sourced in distant host country locations. We also argue that the generality of subsidiary innovation is greater when less familiar knowledge is sourced from not too distant host country locations because the novel com...
Firms often establish knowledge linkages to geographically dispersed locations in order to source diversified knowledge. The involvement into global knowledge networks is particularly useful for actors from emerging countries, which may seek to offset the relative backwardness of their domestic knowledge base by accessing distant and diverse technology. Yet, not all locations offer the same opportunities for knowledge sourcing. This study investigates the relationship between global city locatio...

Abstract Multinational corporations (MNCs) have increasingly sourced knowledge across borders, and foreign subsidiaries operations have played a critical role in MNC international knowledge sourcing strategies. The growing responsibility of foreign subsidiaries has paralleled an interest on the geography of this phenomenon by international business and international management scholars. In this chapter, we review this research. In addition, based on recent research in economics and management dr...

We study innovation networks in emerging markets, where foreign actors have been identified as key sources of knowledge spillovers as well as progenitors of industry clusters. Focusing on connectivity as a channel for international knowledge sourcing, we widen our lens beyond multinational enterprises (MNEs) to include critical innovative actors such as research institutions (i.e. universities and research centers). We examine the geographic dispersion of co-inventor networks generated by US pat...

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore the role of different learning sources in the process of capability building of Chinese firms (CFs) approaching international markets. Design/methodology/approach The paper is based on the case study of the company “Goodbaby.” The primary data sources are two semi-structured interviews with one of the firm’s managers, which have been triangulated with point of sale visits, interviews with industry experts, and secondary data such as corporate recor...
