Given the vibrant market for the acquisitions of new ventures, identifying the determinants of these acquisitions is an important question for practitioners and academics alike. We investigate whether team ventures are more likely to be acquired than single-founder ventures, and if so, attempt to determine what number of founders, or team size, is associated with the highest acquisition likelihood. Using the Kauffman Firm Survey (KFS) panel data, our results indicate that team-founded new ventur...

Abstract Despite a growing number of studies on the survival of new ventures who pursue an international entry strategy, research in this area is not yet conclusive. One line of argument tells a story of unprepared novices making a risky move, and thus predicts negative consequences. Another line of argument tells a story of prepared entrepreneurs making a strategic decision, and thus predicts positive consequences. The problem of estimating the true effect involves an important endogeneity prob...

Research summary We review existing theoretical propositions on the equilibrating and disequilibrating effects of entrepreneurship in the market process. We then introduce a game theoretical model of the market process and employ computer simulation to analyze it through time. The formal analysis suggests that entrepreneurship as the creation of new opportunities may not always be disequilibrating, and entrepreneurship as the discovery and exploitation of existing opportunities may not always be...

This chapter reviews a line of research that studies several different theoretical questions in entrepreneurship through novel applications of computer simulation. All of the simulation studies reviewed are based on a shared game-theoretical modeling framework that allows a high level of integration with existing theories. What made these simulations unique was their firm grounding in the theory of the entrepreneurial market process from Austrian economics, and the lack of previous simulation st...

Despite a growing number of studies on the survival of new ventures who pursue an international entry strategy, research in this area is not yet conclusive. One line of argument tells a story of unprepared novices making a risky move, and thus predicts negative consequences. Another line of argument tells a story of prepared entrepreneurs making a strategic decision, and thus predicts positive consequences. This gives rise to an important theoretical and empirical endogeneity problem in the stud...

Rent generation and appropriation is a central concern in strategy theory. Bargaining power has been identified as an important determinant of how much value is appropriated by a firm or entrepreneur in economic exchange, and an important component of bargaining power called bargaining ability has been identified in the game theoretic literature on value-added analysis in strategy. Building on this literature, we use mathematical modeling and computer simulation to show that in the context of ba...

Alliances have been studied extensively in the past and various arguments have been suggested to explain their evolution and eventual termination. We argue that one important explanation of alliance termination has remained overlooked, one where the mechanism revolves around resource value and is independent of any mismanagement, opportunism, lack of trust, interpretive misunderstanding, or perceptions of inequity. In this explanation, we recognize explicitly that resources undergo transformatio...

There is an ongoing debate on how firms can simultaneously generate resource-based and relational rents, i.e., how they can benefit from increasingly specialized knowledge and resources on the one hand, while also fulfilling relation-specific demands for adaptation that allow them to benefit more fully from their partnerships. We contend that firms with the capability to more effectively and efficiently (a) adapt their own resources to relational requirements, and (b) adapt their relationship’s ...
