Research on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) has done little to explore the drivers of coopetition. However, this issue is crucial for practitioners in charge of implementing the coopetition process. We address this gap by exploring the drivers of coopetition among SMEs through a longitudinal case study based on 34 interviews along with informal conversations in the French wine cluster of Pic Saint-Loup. We find that the coopetition process (1) occurs in stages driven by specific environmental factors and (2) is facilitated by the social capital of cluster members, particularly the central member (owner-manager), which is key to the success of each coopetition stage. Our results provide a better understanding of wine cluster development and the inducement of SME coopetition. [less ▲]

While the literature on coopetitive strategies is expanding, the topic of the drivers of coopetition has received little attention. However, understanding the drivers of coopetition is a key issue for practitioners in charge of the implementation of the coopetition process. Addressing this gap in the literature, we explore the drivers of SMEs coopetition in a French wine industry area: Pic-Saint-Loup. Our findings reveal that the drivers of coopetition are evolving and are determined by the environmental context and the centrality of the actors. [less ▲]
