This paper develops a model of entrepreneurial learning in order to explain how VCs support the process of entrepreneurial learning and thereby add value to their ventures. We draw on two generic approaches to learning, termed the hypothesis-testing mode and the hermeneutic mode, which turn out to be closely interrelated in such learning processes. The resulting model comprises four categories, which focus on what entrepreneurs learn and how it is learnt: experimentation, evaluation, unreflectiv...

This line of research has recently begun to attract renewed interest, in reflection of not only critical new trends regarding the nature and conditions of technological change but also significant developments in the realm of economic and managerial theory. The aim of this paper is, first, to outli...

This paper describes how large, typically multi-technology corporations build up and exploit their technological capability by purchasing small, technology-based firms in order to acquire their technology. The frequency, possible causes and economic effects of this phenomenon are elaborated, based on empirical studies of Swedish industry. A new mechanism for trading technology through the trading of small firms among large firms is proposed.

Abstract This paper introduces the concept of a multi-technology corporation (MTC) and elaborates upon some critical problems in managing innovation in such a context. A model that may aid in conceptualizing various technology strategies is presented. Two generic management of technology problems, technology transition and technology transfer, are presented and analysed. Two empirical case illustrations are given. One case analyzes how the Swedish telecommunications company Ericsson managed its ...
