We document how, in the early years of high-technology firms, the origination of technological knowledge starts with firm founders, then shifts to other firm members, and, later on, shifts to exter...

This paper intersects extant theories of the MNC with empirically observed patterns in the intra-company emergence and diffusion of technological capabilities. It draws upon a database containing the complete patenting history of 24 Swedish multinationals over the 1890-2008 period, which allows for the identification of when and where in the multinational organization new technological capabilities first emerged, and when and to where they subsequently diffused into other units of the multinatio...

This paper probes the extent to which the rise of the ‘modern’ multinational corporation (MNC) has come with significantly altered patterns in the emergence and diffusion of technological capabilities across units of the MNC network. It draws upon a database containing the complete U.S. patenting history of 24 Swedish multinationals over the 1946–2008 period, which allows us to trace both the emergence and subsequent intra-firm diffusion of technological capabilities throughout the post-war peri...

Knight and Cavusgil’s award-winning article has played an important role in the development of the growing body of research on companies that internationalize early and rapidly. These “born global” firms represent important contributors to many economies, often as key players in ecosystems that support large multinational enterprises. Despite their growing importance, our understanding of how and why these firms develop and implement their internationalization strategies, and what makes them suc...

This article reviews historical and contemporary patterns of how business firms extend their operations outside their country of origin. Addressing the ‘why,’ ‘when,’ ‘where,’ and ‘how’ of business firms' internationalization, it illustrates how over time traditional and incremental approaches to internationalization have evolved toward increasingly heterogeneous and rapid internationalization processes. Especially the emergence and internationalization of multinational corporations from the dev...
In this paper, we explore the origins and transformation of knowledge in new ventures and their implications for product scope expansion. We argue and show empirically that the share of the founder ...

This paper develops a people-centric perspective on the geographical dispersion of technological renewal in the multinational corporation (MNC). We contend that a large proportion of all foreign technological advancements can be attributed to a handful of individual inventors, suggesting a blockbuster effect of subsidiary technological development. This suggests that analyses carried out at the subsidiary or firm level disguise significant yet largely unexplored variation in the technological co...
