Abstract This study identifies key mechanisms linking multinationality with the knowledge advantages of multinational corporations (MNCs). These mechanisms are the absorption of new knowledge by one individual MNC unit and the subsequent flows of such newly absorbed knowledge to other geographically distant units of the same firm. The intra-MNC and inter-unit flows of such newly absorbed knowledge include exchanges between a parent and its overseas subsidiaries and those between subsidiaries. Th...

Identifying valuable technological inventions in a timely manner for further development and commercialisation has important strategic implications for organisations to maximise social welfare and return on investments. Building upon the advantages that social network approach can predict performance in short investigation periods, this study develops a conceptual and novel framework to predict patent value through analysing patent citations network structural indicators. Our proposed approach h...

By applying specialized complementary assets concept to the technological portfolio of a firm, this study suggests that the combination of knowledge in certain technological categories of a firm could be an important appropriability mechanism. We analyse the US patents of large firms in electrical equipment industry between 1988 and 2006. We find that core and background technological knowledge of a firm from internal and external sources, respectively, are complementary in that the combination ...

Immigrant-started new ventures face the liability of ethnicity because of their founders’ disadvantaged immigration status. It is extremely difficult for them to acquire human, social and financial capital and access market in founders’ country of residence to survive. This study empirically examines the survival of immigrant-started new ventures. We find that an early internationalization strategy could enhance those ventures’ survival and that immigration status moderates the effect of an earl...

This study identifies two categories of exploration for competence-creating subsidiaries of contemporary multinational corporations (MNCs) by taking both the subsidiary's and the MNC's existing knowledge into consideration. While subsidiary exploration not new to the MNC (SE1) brings in knowledge that is only new to the focal subsidiary but not new to the rest of the MNC, subsidiary exploration new to the MNC (SE2) experiments knowledge that is new to both the subsidiary and the rest of the MNC....
