ABSTRACTThis study examines the effect of intellectual property rights (IPR) on firms’ geographic overlap strategy of external technology search (ETS) compared to rivals. I reveal that firms are ab...

Esta tesis analiza la relacion entre la gestion del conocimiento y las capacidades dinamicas, relacion poco explorada en paises en via de desarrollo. Teoricamente, las hipotesis planteadas en este estudio se asocian a partir de los principios de la Vision de la Firma basada en Recursos, la cual senala que el conocimiento es un recurso que posibilita la formulacion, la restructuracion y la implementacion de estrategias competitivas. En esta investigacion se formulan relaciones entre las dimension...

Los ecosistemas regionales de innovacion - ERI, en los paises de economias emergentes, surgen como una alternativa para fortalecer el desarrollo de los territorios con base en las dinamicas de la sociedad, que logran la integracion de esfuerzos hacia la consecucion de un mismo objetivo. Sin embargo, actualmente las relaciones entre los actores de ERI son debiles, desaparecen en el tiempo y presentan duplicidad de funciones. El presente trabajo se propone identificar cual es el rol de las institu...

This paper explores the role of proximity in strategic asset-seeking multinational enterprises’ (MNE) co-location in subnational knowledge/innovation intensive clusters. MNE co-location in three Dutch science parks is examined in terms of the perceived importance of geographic, cognitive, social, organisational and institutional proximity dimensions. While all five proximity dimensions are found to play a role, organisational proximity emerged as the most important factor influencing MNE co-loca...

We analyse the initial IP applications of 4,703 start-ups in the U.S., distinguishing between trademark and patent applications. Our empirical results show that start-ups are more likely to file for trademarks instead of patents when entering markets with a higher market concentration. Furthermore, we find that start-ups that are primarily active in business-to-consumer markets instead of business-to-business markets are more likely to file trademarks. Finally, the involvement of a venture capit...

One novel implication of the open innovation paradigm is that inflows and outflows of knowledge are complementary. We argue that engaging simultaneously in buying and selling knowledge should allow firms to increase innovation outcomes. At the same time, we identify some of the relevant costs (cognitive, transaction, and organizational costs) that “open” firms can reduce by combining knowledge inflows and outflows. Empirically, however, we find no evidence for such complementarity in a sample of...

Although open innovation has become increasingly established in the management literature, comprehensive theoretical explanations of what drives firms to be open are sparse. Taking the perspective of the behavioral theory of the firm, we conceive of open innovation as a form of nonlocal search, arguing that firms will turn to open innovation when substantially under- or over-performing relative to their aspirations. We further enquire how this relationship is moderated by firm-specific innovatio...

This article analyzes how the patent stock of new entrants in industries shaped by systemic innovations influences their subsequent openness in innovation. The results suggest that patenting increases new entrants’ number of open innovation relationships, on average. This association, however, varies across relationships of differing technology intensity. While the effect of patenting is strongly positive for technology-intensive relationships, it becomes weaker as the technology intensity decre...

This paper analyzes the effects of patents and trademarks in the financing of start-ups through venture capitalists (VCs). Patents and trademarks signal a start-up’s technological and marketing capabilities. We find that patents and trademarks not only have direct effects on venture capital financing but also have complementary effects. Start-ups that apply for both patents and trademarks yield higher VC funding than do those firms that apply for only one of the two IP rights. Furthermore, we fi...

Much work on technological change agrees that the combination of new and existing technological capabilities is one of the principal sources of inventive novelty, and that there have been instances in history when new inventions appear with few antecedents. The many discussions across research communities regarding the relative roles of combination and origination as sources of technological novelty have not provided much in the way of formal identification and quantification. By taking advantag...

Firms increasingly rely upon trademarks, but management research exploiting trademark data is surprisingly limited. Reasons for this include data availability, awareness, and bias toward other sources, in particular patents. I demonstrate how imaginative scholars have used trademarks to capture several elements of how, when, and to what extent firms bring (new) products and services to the market. Their work can inspire further applications, particularly now that trademarks are becoming more str...
