We analyze the drivers of success in mobile payments services (MPS) by examining how companies reconfigure their capabilities to lead to new innovations in the mobile payment space. We examine the ...
Mobile money is a financial innovation that provides transfers, payments, and other financial services at a low or zero cost to individuals in developing countries where banking and capital markets are deficient and financial inclusion is low. We use transaction costs and institutional theories to explain the growth and impact of mobile money. Having developed a new archival dataset that tracks mobile money deployment across 90 emerging economies during 16 years between 2000 and 2015, we address...

Entrepreneurial alertness can play a vital role in the identification and creation of opportunities involving early-stage ventures. However, the strategic function of entrepreneurial alertness in more mature organizations has not been explored. In a field study of organizations responding to an environmental disruption, we explore if entrepreneurial alertness influences decisions involving the creation and maintenance of competitive advantage. We find a direct effect of entrepreneurial alertness...

Equity crowdfunding (ECF) offers entrepreneurs an online social media marketplace where they can access numerous potential investors who, in exchange for an ownership stake, may supply them with finance. In this paper, we describe the evolution of this market in the UK. Using an inductive qualitative longitudinal research design, we analyse the emerging views of entrepreneurs and investors towards ECF. Our interviewees include large and small-scale investors, as well as market participants who h...

Equity crowdfunding (ECF) offers founders of new ventures an online social media marketplace where they can access a large number of investors who, in exchange for an ownership stake, provide finance for business opportunities that they find attractive. In this paper, we first quantify the evolution of the ECF market in the UK, the world leader, as well as the benign regulatory environment. ECF already represents more than 15% of British early stage entrepreneurial finance. We then use qualitati...

Financial services in developing countries are often expensive, leaving many of the poorest citizens without access to bank accounts. However, the growth of mobile payment services have been seen as a way to increase access by allowing individuals to send and receive payments through their phones. Although there has been much research on the benefits of ‘mobile money’, there has been relatively little academic inquiry into the firms who provide such services and their effectiveness. This researc...

Entrepreneurship is essential for economic growth and employment creation. Yet despite its key role in the economy, entrepreneurs find it hard to access the financing they need to start and expand their businesses. Lack of funding is perennially identified as a major constraint on new venture growth. Moreover, traditional venture capital markets have been criticised for not being inclusive in terms of geographic reach, gender, or race.

Prior research highlights the importance of co-investments among foreign and domestic investors in an emerging VC market. Yet, the question of how domestic and foreign VC syndicate partners select each other for their initial co-investment remains an open one. The question is important because uncertainty in emerging markets exposes participants to risks associated with higher levels of agency, problems of adverse selection, and potential opportunism. Building on agency theory, we hypothesize an...
