Although it is argued that competitiveness and successful performance in the long-term is facilitated if ventures engage in innovations in diverse domains (e.g. product, process, production, administration, etc.), the development of diversified innovation has been rarely analyzed. As the entrepreneurs’ initial motivations to startup are likely to influence their subsequent entrepreneurial behavior, this study aims to explore whether and how entrepreneurial motivations affect diversified innovation behavior in startups. Using data on over 48.000 French startups, we present novel insights into the consequences of entrepreneurial motivation for innovation behavior. In fact, we find that distinct startup motivations can have different effects on the development of diverse innovations. As such, our findings contribute to extant research on innovation development of startups and advance the present understanding of the determinants of startups’ innovative behavior [less ▲]

Da Unternehmertum und Innovationen stark miteinander verknüpft sind, wird in dieser Studie der Zusammenhang zwischen ursprünglichen Gründungsmotivationen von Unternehmern und deren tatsächlichen Produktinnovationen innerhalb der ersten Gründungsjahre untersucht. Basierend auf einer Stichprobe der französischen SINE Datenbank, welche von dem französischen Nationalen Institut für Statistik und Wirtschaftsplanung zur Verfügung gestellt wurde, wird gezeigt, dass verschiedene Gründungsmotivationen das Produktinnovationsverhalten von Start-ups positiv beeinflussen und dass Gründungsmotivationen damit auch nach der Gründung noch Nachfolgen haben können. So zeigen die Ergebnisse, dass Gründungsmotivationen wie unternehmerisches Denken und Handeln, Verbessern der finanziellen Position, Nutzen einer Geschäftschance oder –Idee und Arbeitslosigkeit einen signifikant positiven Effekt auf Produktinnovation im frisch gegründeten Unternehmen ausüben.

Macro-economic policies such as public financing seek to push the development and introduction of innovations; however, entrepreneurs also need support in their “day-to-day” activities to improve their capability to launch innovations. As this micro-level perspective is rarely studied, we analyze both the micro and macro levels by examining the effects of the entrepreneurs’ individual intention to innovate and public financing. Additionally, we include the meso level, representing entrepreneurs’ network. Entrepreneurs are embedded in social spheres in which they capture resources and identify opportunities. But not all entrepreneurs are equally well supported, and some tend to be completely isolated. We thus focus on multilevel factors explaining new product or service launching in new ventures. Drawing on data of 48,251 French new ventures, we reveal that innovation intention and public financing positively impact new ventures’ product and service innovation launching, while entrepreneurs’ isolation has a negative effect. We also highlight two interaction effects that enhance the multilevel effects of innovation antecedents. [less ▲]

Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are particularly vulnerable to environmental forces and may therefore seek to supplement their insufficient resources and reduce uncertainty by adopting coopetition strategies. This longitudinal study of a wine producers union in Pic Saint-Loup is based on forty-five interviews conducted during multiple data collection moments and shows how competing SMEs were able to develop cooperative strategies. We describe the three phases in the development of SME coopetition, as well as the role of stakeholders. We then present the tertius strategies that the SME managers chose to implement. [less ▲]
